How to Use 3 Washes in One Illustration

The way you paint with different watercolor washes in your work is how you get your signature style.  My top washes are wet into wet, gradient and flat washes.  I talk about them in greater detail over at ZEM Brush.  Go check it out, it is my third article over there and I'm loving explaining my behind the scenes as well as showing how I paint.

Why I Love the Underrated Cat's Tongue Brush

If you are not using a Cat's Tongue brush, you definitely should.  It is like the Swiss army knife of watercolor brushes!  I absolutely love this style of brush and I talk about it in detail over at www.zembrush.com.  

I painted this entire mermaid painting with just a Cat's Tongue brush, the no. 4 2400 Golden Taklon Cat's Tongue Brush is my current love.  That triangular shape is everything!  Click here to read my article over at ZEM Brush.

I list all of my favorites over here, as well as what is in my watercolor kit.
