Trucs et astuces de l'aquarelliste Brigitte Charland. J'aime utiliser la gomme réserve pour préserver les blancs, parce qu'elle m'offre la paix d'esprit pour peindre en lavis multiples et avoir une gestuelle très libre. J'aime beaucoup utiliser la gomme réserve (ou gomme-cache) Pébéo parce qu'elle est très élastique et grise, donc neutre. Sa couleur n'intervient pas dans mon processus de sélection des tons comme une gomme jaune le peut. Je n'aime pas non plus la gomme blanche parce qu'elle n'est pas assez visible et il est difficile de savoir si elle est bien appliquée. Evitez de la brasser vigoureusement sinon vous serez incommodé par de nombreuses petites bulles à l'application. J'utilise n'importe lequel de mes pinceaux pour appliquer la gomme et ne les gaspille jamais grâce à la préparation suivante; bien mouiller le pinceau en vous assurant d'y remplir la virole, ne pas l'éponger, puis le savonner abondamment avant de le tremper dans la gomme.

Ne séchez pas la gomme au séchoir, laissez-la sécher par elle-même. Atelier de La Salamandre, La technique de l'aquarelle. Croquis de randonnee - Trucs et astuces pour apprendre le dessin. Cours de peinture.
