About this kit: This workshop will include three professional-grade brushes from Peggy’s own The Pigeon Letters collection: two round brushes and one wash brush. These premium brushes are eco-friendly, professional grade, synthetic paint brushes — meaning no animal by-products are used in creation or testing, making these cruelty-free. Each brush has long handles for executing multiple techniques with one brush. Use the belly for broad strokes, or the super-fine tip for hairline strokes in detailed work. The wash brush is excellent for creating a thick, broad stroke of color across the page. The paper included in your kit is 140lb premium, cold-pressed watercolor paper. Just watch as the paint sits beautifully within the textured fibers of the papers!
This workshop kit also features a deep perylene green watercolor paint that is professional grade and highly pigmented, giving you a huge range of hues and tones to work with once mixed with water. We are also thrilled to be including Dr. Ph. Martin’s Pen-White ink to pair with the watercolor paint. Dr. Ph. Martin specializes in creating premium liquid chemical compounds for the best artists across all mediums. From their paints to their dyes and inks, Dr. Ph. Martin is a trusted US-based brand for many artists because of their commitment to vivid colors, specialized properties, and careful creation.
The pen-white ink for this workshop is most often used for fine writing in a technical pen or an airbrush tool. We are taking this ink to a new medium, as Peggy shows us how to implement it with our watercolor paint. Just look at how the beautiful opaque ink gives a unique finish! This liquid ink delivers the brightness and permanency of traditional, tubed watercolors and is significantly more versatile and easy to use with the glass dropper and fine pen tip. You will love playing with the opaque color that is able to cover even the darkest backgrounds and papers to add a beautiful contrast.
As you explore the forest with us, embrace the imperfections. Nature is the perfect creative inspiration because it highlights the beauty of imperfections and variety. Play with different sizes, brush strokes, and opacity levels as you experiment with your pigments and ink. We are so excited to see what mystical forest you create!
