Brooklyn Watercolor Society
In 1972, a group of 10 avid watercolor artists assembled together in one of their homes and formed the Brooklyn Watercolor Society. It was decided at the earliest meetings that membership in the organization would be selective, in order to assure a professional quality to exhibits and presentations. It was also decided that a requirement for membership would be that the watercolor artist must live, work, or have been born in Brooklyn. The Society meets monthly to discuss ideas and issues concerning the watercolor artist, to share their latest paintings and professional accomplishments, to organize painting trips and other special events, and to plan group exhibitions and watercolor demonstrations within Brooklyn and its surrounding regions. The Society began exhibiting as a group in 1974 and has presented several group exhibits every year since.
My clay was very useful, and I put it to work a lot; however, after a month, you could tell it was drying out. It's as hard as a rock now. I reccomend getting a smaller container to use in a small period of time!
As a cartoonist, I've found only the 100 nib to be one
that acts like a brush in that it gives me the thick and thin line that I desire, and a very thin line as well. It
handles well and is very flexible.
Lanaquarelle cold press is a beautiful paper for watercolor and gouache. It does not hold up to drafting tape as a masking method, but can take masking fluids. The paint continues to slowly and evenly disperse across a wet surface, applied even after the wet sheen subsides, so be careful not to over-paint during wet on wet or dispersion will go too far. It is a great paper for very surprising subtle and delicate effects, as well as bold and saturated washes, which apply easily and evenly. I am glad I tried this paper and I would definitely use it again and again.
