The ocean was speaking to me this week as I just spent a recent day there by the sea. I love water and the energy of movement it creates! The lesson plan this week was focused on the use of white gouache instead of masking fluid to retain the white of the paper. With the use of the opaque white paint and a toothbrush or some dry brushing you can create great ocean spray. Some students used different brushes for making slashing water texture. I did also notice that my Winsor & Newton brand paint, the Designers Gouache Permanent White worked best. Someone had some other brand that did not work as good and someone had Zinc White witch was not as affective.
