I meant a brush bath.  You don't want to go dunking in Gamsol.  

This is what separates WSO from traditional oil, hence this subject.

As always go for it… let's hear what y'all have to say… Smile

There were a few minor things that were bugging me about the bottom of the can. So I made some adjustments to it.

Oh! nothing Jan.

Actually, I am taking a One day workshop by Kelli Folsom http://www.kellifolsom.com (Check her out, she is very good) in Oklahoma City on Saturday. I will be waking up at 5:00am to drive up to Oklahoma City because the workshop starts at 9:00am. I like it for several reasons, It is one day. It is at a driving distance (3hours) and it is only $60.00 and she paints on gessoed panel, something I want to see how people do with so much success.

Faisal

I had this message almost finished and hit a wrong key and wiped it out! So briefly:

Please tell us all about the workshop! I've never taken one so want to know what you learn and think about it.

Re: traveling with paint supplies from another thread, have you ever considered watercolor crayons and maybe a water brush? We travel by car now because of our little dog but you can't beat them for ease when traveling by plane. I have everything but my paper in a kid's school pencil bag. The crayons came in a metal tin and I can use it to mix colors if need be. Mostly I just layer color then wet to blend on the paper but sometimes I wet the crayon (as if it were a pan color) or pick off pieces of the crayon and mix colors in the lid of the tin.

I have the cheaper Stadtler crayons and some watercolor pencils that I got several years ago but now almost every company that makes paint has a line of these crayons:

and the water brushes:
http://www.dickblick.com/products/sakura-koi-water-brush/

http://www.dickblick.com/products/aqua-flow-brush-set/

Anyway, just a thought for you.

Oh, look for the Caran D'Ache video at the bottom of the page on the Dick Blick website for the crayons. That video explains a lot of the way they work and I'm sure there are other videos on You Tube.

Jan,

Yes! most certainly will tell you about the workshop. I attended one in Dallas by Anna Rose Bain (Check out her figure and portraits, she is awesome). It is always fantastic to meet with like minded people.

Thanks for sharing the info above,.. I will look into it.

Thanks

Faisal

The Workshop in Oklahoma with Kelli Folsom was great. She is quite accomplished. I am planning to take one of her still-life 1-day workshop in May as well. Check her on the web.

I did check her out - you're very fortunate to have been able to take the workshop and to be able to attend another on next month!
