"Dry brush is the technique I use in most of my watercolor paintings. I lightly draw my composition on either 140 lb. or 300 lb. cold press Arches paper and begin painting thin layers, creating the desired balance of lights and darks.  I often feel that I'm drawing with the brush rather than painting.  Using less water allows me greater control of the medium making it easier to reach the level of detail I like".
