Week 5: Kolor Kaleidoscope with Lee Krasner


lee_krasner2This week, let’s play with masking fluid (resist) and watercolor and take some inspiration from these lovely Lee Krasner paintings.  Notice the graphic white lines and bold color choices in these abstract pieces. There’s a new product on the market that makes using masking fluid easy-peasy, the new Molotow Masking Pen (that we are lovin’!).  These pens are available in 2 sizes and are refillable!  Start drawing with the masking pen – a pattern or a graphic motif (like Lee does) or just doodle whatever is in your noodle- and paint bold rich colors over the page (maybe get a big brush). When the paint has dried, use your finger or a soft eraser to lift the masking away to reveal the lovely white of your page(s).

jm-aa_08_05This week at Wet Paint all Molotow Masking Pens are 15% off our everyday price and all Holbein Watercolors in open stock are 25% off MSRP!  Plus, we have a set of 12 Holbein watercolors at a super bargain price of $35.00 (MSRP $79.00)! And, if you are in need of a big brush, our favorite is the Black Velvet by Silver Brush.

  1. Hi Liz — I just noticed that your links to the suggested supplies don’t work, and the reason is, you need a colon after the “http” in the web address for the link.
