Experimental Work 4 by ExcaliburZ Experimental Work 4 by ExcaliburZ
Attempt at watercolors using a piston water-brush. It worked well but maybe to much water.

piston water-brush? Is it the one you press for water to come out?

No those are squeeze brushes.
This is what I am using. Right now I am still working on how to best use them, they are giving me more water then I want.

Very impressive. According to the video you can control the waterflow. However, I did notice that you like to paint outside, so the water flow has to be more controlled, and if too controlled you will run out of water. If the brush works like I think it does, you will have to tighten it and just take a little container with water for refills.

I want a set of these. Did you buy it in that website?

Yeah, I am not sure how it can control waterflow. I actually paint inside but I am not worried about running out of water. I bought it from ebay, but the prices are the same and he sells them on a bunch of websites.

Alright I see. I will look into it. I'd like to have some. More experiments!!!! hahahah. It's really great. And how come you worry about running out of water? Is there not enough water supply over there?

More of having a constant flow of water when doing watercolor.

Oh I see. Well, think of all the painters before that didnt have those brushes and still managed. It is like a dip ink pen. I use those to draw. It's about knowing when to refil your brush to keep the thing looking constant. However, for what you've explained to me, I know that you like the one strokes nonstop. It's the style, and with these brushes it seems more and more possible hehe.

You'll figure it out I know it! I want to see more artwork. Did you see my latest deviation? The character above all else, I'm studying color theory.
