|work in progress - oil on panel|
I like flat brushes best. My favorite for small paintings is a # 6 flat. I used an angled flat # 10 for the big flat areas before switching to #6. It took me about an hour and a half to get to this stage. I block in and put the first paint application on quickly. Working quickly, intuition kicks in, which prevents over-thinking, somehow giving me a fresher look. All this, gets me into a rhythm which I find peaceful. I rarely can finish a painting in one sitting. I need space and distance from it to know when it's done.
