Hello friends! World Watercolor Month video #8 is over at MFT – hope you enjoy my lil dramatic lion!

In this project I used a wide brush for the background – this is a Cosmotop Spin brush and it does a nice job of releasing pigment. Other flat brushes can do a similar thing butI also like that I can make a thin line with it sometimes as needed as well. My other brushes are Silver Black Velvet Round brushes, and I most often reach for a #8 and #12.
