Variegated Wash Watercolor Technique For Dramatic Skies & Landscapes
Step 13: More Rust Using The Dry Brush Technique
With the flat brush, fray the bristles, and take some Brown Madder paint before testing the color on some tissue (it shouldn’t be too dark). To create some wear and tear rust lines on the left side of the barn roof, turn the painting sideways to help give you a more comfortable angle to paint, and gently brush the paint to create short, dry brushstrokes that follow the same direction of the roof’s panels. Switch to the Burnt Sienna and apply the same texture to the right side of the roof. Check if there are any gaps in color around the barn or horizon and touch up as needed.
