Hey everyone. Today on the blog I’m doing a Brea Reese watercolor review. I have the watercolor tubes from Brea Reese and I wanted to pan them for a project. Any time I get a new watercolor product I like to color swatch them and pan some to color with. There are two different packages of Brea Reese watercolor tubes, Classic and Jewel. I’m going to be sharing and swatching both today.
Here is a quick tutorial showing you how I pan my watercolors and how I swatch them. It’s important to know the colors that you are working with and get familiar with them. Some paints may be more transparent than others and they also may have a higher or lower water content. So let’s get into the review. Products used for this tutorial are listed below for your shopping convenience.
Thanks for stopping by for this review. Remember what I mentioned in the tutorial. Work with your paints to get the feel for them. See how they respond to different papers and brushes. Be curious about the products you purchase. It helps with your creativity and overall happiness of using a product. Here as a link to tutorials I have here on my blog. Let’s get inspired to create. Make sure to come back later today as I’ll have a sneak peek for you from Pink and Main.
(DISCLAIMER: THESE PAINTS HAVE A HIGHER WATER CONTENT SO THEY MAY CRACK WHEN YOU PAN A LARGE AMOUNT. IF YOU ARE PANNING A PALETTE, I WOULD HIGHLY SUGGEST INCLUDING A DROP OR TWO OF GLYCERIN INTO THE PAINT, MIXING IT WELL AND THEN LETTING IT AIR DRY IN YOUR PALETTE. IF YOU ARE ONLY USING A SMALL AMOUNT FOR A PROJECT I WOULDN’T WORRY ABOUT THE PAINT DRYING AND CRACKING.)
