How to get the most from your brushes

Why…test them out. See what your brushs can do for you. I tested brushes from sizes 0 to 6.

See how comfortable the brushes feel in my hand. Test for thin, thick and sideways trokes. The pen/brush should glide on the page as you write. The easiest brush to write with is size 6. This brush has a round pointy tip which holds a good amount of paint. It was easy to do the thin strokes. My hand shakes more with the smaller brushes. Yet the size 1 and 0 write beautifully. I say it’s in the pointiness of the brush. There’s practice too.

What is all this practice for? These words need to be written.

Many of the images have alreadly been painted. There’s a few redos. This Friday is my deadline to create two prints. I could probably do more. This week I’ll be working on a fun project. I’ll be lettering one word using markers as watercolor. What else do I have planned? I’m painting a Peruvian rug.

Thank you for reading. Have a good day or evening?
