Brush Drawing & Brushwork
First published in the early 1900s, this technique was used in classrooms to replicate materials a student found outdoors. You will need watercolors, quite heavy paper, a slanted surface, and some good brushes that will hold water. Practice the brushstrokes shown (that quite naturally look like flora & fauna) according to the brief instructions. The results are simply charming! Brushwork has more basic strokes with a grid background. Brush Drawing elaborates and expands the strokes and shows more application.
