I was all over the map this morning. It began at 9am with a members-only presentation at the Museum of Flight. Kathrine Brown, Assistant Registrar, gave the presentation on “Style in the Aisle” about the uniforms of flight attendants
I moved on the Daniel Smith’s mothership in Seattle. There was a Watercolor Demonstration, “Here Comes the Sun” by Cindy Briggs & Theresa Goesling.
They recommended the DS Black Gold Watercolor 311 Quill Brush in size 4. They said
it can both draw with a sharp point or lay down wide swathes of color. DS mothership was all out of that size. Since I tend to paint in small sketchbooks, I tried the size 0 as it was in stock. I painted the sketches in the next post with it and was very pleased.
Also a maintenance hint from them. If the point gets soft, one can try dipping it in boiling hot water to bring back the point, at least for a little while.
