OCTOBER 2012 PROGRAM - HELEN HABERSTROH
Helen Haberstroh did the program on pen and ink with a watercolor wash.
Helen takes her original drawing and has it reduced to a 4 x 6 print on “cover paper“. She will also make a copy of her original drawing with the color wash so that she can use it to copy from for her other prints.
Her favorite brushes for painting are Kolinsky brushes and Koh-i-nor .25 pen and ink from Jerry’s Artarama.
Helen gave us some advice. Paint things you love and play with it, then your painting will be successful.
The other thing she said which we have heard before is learn a technique from a workshop or program and then make it your own.
Helen entertained us during her program with many stories and her delightful wit.
