6" x 4" oil on canvas
Today's daily painting - tube of paint, and it was my husband's suggestion to have the paint coming out of the tube so I blame him for the sheer extravagance of wasting paint! I've discovered that the smoother the object the more fiddly I become and its all I can do not to use the tiddliest brushes I own.
I've had the yearning to paint/draw bed sheets for years - since we first arrived in Mexico 4 years ago! So I've set myself the target to try to produce the picture I have in my head. I think its going to take a few studies to get there and then who knows, maybe a painting.
Nice surprise of 15 new brushes arriving in the mail today - but as usual I bought too many little ones and not enough chunky ones. And I need to find out if its possible to buy a scumbling brush or whether its just a case of wearing brushes out first. One of my favourite brushes is about 1/4 of an inch wide and the bristles must be shorter than that - I love it!
