My "secret project"...

watercolor, 6" x 6"
Chris Beck

I spent most of the month of August on a project that I couldn't discuss until it was finalized. Just got word that it's a go, so....

Sometime last spring, I was invited to be the guest columnist for one of the features in The Artist's Magazine. The Brushing Up column is devoted to technical matters of painting and my article covers one of my favorite art products -- masking fluid.  There are tips on purchasing and handling it, as well as ways of using this versatile product.  Schnozz is one of the paintings I did specifically for the article and there are stepped out examples of how I painted each one.

My article will appear in the January/February 2014 issue of The Artist's Magazine -- due out in early December.  I'll be sure to let you know when it's available.


  1. Look forward to reading the article.

    1. Thanks, Karen -- I really enjoyed writing it and painting the examples, and the magazine folks did a fantastic job putting it together. Hope you enjoy it.

  2. You rock, Chris! I subscribe and will be looking forward to saying "Here's an article by my friend, Chris Beck . . . " (just a little name dropping!) Congrats!

    1. Thanks, Deb!! I'm tickled that you are planning to drop my name!!
