Brush Strokes for Beginners and Improvers

Brushwork has always been a passion for me for over 25 years. I would like to invite you to share this with me.

One Stroke Painting has been around for many years. You don’t have to be a good Artist to do it. One of the things I love about One Stroke Painting is that you don’t, after a few lessons, even need a pattern. You will be able to paint any craft surface with firing and non-firiing paints. Acrylics have also been a great product for One Stroke painting. The only exception is Watercolour paints.

I use ChromaColour Artist Acrylics manufactured in UK by ChromaColour www.chromacolour.co.uk and find them the very best of paints for this technique. You can use them straight from the bottle or thin them right down to make a watercolour that will not bleed watercolours always do when you try to multi load.

You will be able to use any craft surface with the One Stroke technique. Re-cycling your furniture is also great fun.

Surfaces you can paint on with One Stroke and ChromaColour Acrylicsme painting poppys (800x639)

  • Card
  • Ceramic bisque
  • Terracotta
  • Watercolour board
  • Re cycled furniture
  • Papier-mâché
  • Metal
  • Glass
  • FabricPHOTOfunSTUDIO wallpaper (491x640)
  • House wall
  • Canvas
  • Umbrellas
  • Shoes

Another important factor is your brushes. I have tried out hundreds of brushes and the best ones are the ones with a bounce and a fine thin chisel edge.

I would love you to join in on a One to One or with a groups of painters. Alternatively I can come to your location  and do a One to One,  talk, demo, or a Workshop for your group of artists.

Every Course includes all materials, Pattern Pack and Lunch. Brush Stroke Brushes are on hand to buy at very reasonable prices.
