Welcome to my studio today everybody, my name is Lars Erik Robinson. My company is LarsEr Arts. All Around Art-tainment's my slogan. Basically I deal with anything that has to do with art and anything that has to do with entertainment. Because being in this business for a while and being a caricature artist, I met a lot of people in the entertainment industry. Today I thought we'd talk about - I'm working on a piece here while I'm just experimenting - talk about how to use a dry brush. I took a dry brush that's a little moist - I actually added a lit bit of water but I didn't soak it to much. I added it to my medium here, until you see it's kind of a dry effect. And I take it on my piece here while I just want to be able to cake it on here like - if I know I want to go dark in here and I want to be able to show up - show up a little bit you just really basically take that paint and be really pure with it and you're creating a texture that you want to have. So, basically what a dry brush is is less liquid with the paint. And if you noticed I also talked about how to do lines with acrylic. Sometimes this is a great way to be able to do freckles on something, or one that maybe has a little - this guy has a little goatee here. And he didn't shave so he has a little bit of a .... so that gives you a different effect than a dry brush. So that helps you understand the different techniques for using a dry, more of a drier brush. Thank you for joining my studio today. I'm Lars Robinson.
