Jodi Steele hosted a demo to play with Daniel Smith watercolors. She provided the dot cards with all the pigment choices and made some suggestions. We also had some nice watercolor paper samples to use.
There were treats from a local doughnut shop, too. There were about 6 of us, some who stayed for a little while and left again and others who came in later. It was a lively group, with plenty of sharing of tips and tricks.
I have some of the dot cards I’ve received at demos over the years. What am I saving them for?? They are an excellent way to try the colors. I ended up buying 3 more tubes of pigments I like better than the ones in my palette now.
Jodi also shared her trick for white highlights: a white water soluble graphite pencil! I’ve been using a white gel pen and haven’t really been happy with the results. She said she dips the tip in water before applying highlights to dry paint.
(they’re not really curved…. just a trick of the closeup lens)
If this is offered again, I’d recommend attending. It was both fun and very useful.
