Hake, Flat & Rigger

What they call talent is nothing but the capacity for doing continuous work in the right way. (Winslow Homer)

I painted today with three brushes. A japanese 1″ hake brush to put in the sky wash, then a 1″ flat in which I painted the foreground and then a #3 rigger which permitted me to create the long plant tendrils. Very simple.

J’ai peint aujourd’hui avec trois brosses. Un pinceau de merlu de 1″ pour le lavis du ciel, puis un pinceau plat dans lequel j’ai peint le premier plan, puis un gréeur? #3 qui m’a permis de créer les vrilles végétales. Très simple.

Paper: Bockingord CP 8″ x 5″
