Check Out One of Zoltan’s Favorite Tools From His Book, Zoltan Szabo’s 70 Favorite Watercolor Techniques:

Brushes: I have designed my own slant bristle brushes make from natural firm bristles in a variety of sizes [1” to 4” (25mm to 102mm) ], and enjoy using them for rich dark colors. The soft slant brushes [1 ½” (38mm) and 2 ½” (64mm)] are also my own design and are most useful for delicate, light and wet washes. I also use a no. 3 rigger brush and a palette knife. As you probably noticed, all of these tools except the rigger are flat brushes. I prefer them because the corner can be used like a pointed round brush, whereas round brush cannot make a wide stroke to imitate a flat brushstroke.

A Word from the Author:

“Because the technical behavior of watercolor is so varied, I have included many quick watercolor sketches to show you some of the most exciting and popular techniques that I use in my paintings. These examples, on page 46 to 107, are not finished paintings but small informative sketches to explain particular technical points. You are free to copy them. They will also help you make sure that the tools you choose will behave well in your hands. In other words, I want you to master these techniques in the shortest possible time and enjoy the experience while you are learning.” — Zoltan Szabo
