Talented techniques

How many different painting techniques do you know?
Typically when artists start out they load the brush with paint and drag, smooth, stipple with the brush often wholly unaware of any particular technique.  Then the desire to take on more challenging projects happens but those challenging painting projects require a whole repertoire of techniques and frustration often sneaks in at this point.  Every month we will investigate and practice a new technique, so month by month you will build a collection of techniques that you can deploy on your more challenging projects.
