Use the biggest brush possible. Quit before you think you are done. Squint while looking at your subject to lose the little shapes. Leaving some of the canvas showing through makes the painting appear more airy. Have a variety of soft and hard edges. Do not apply your brush to the canvas until you have checked yourself. Make each brushstroke count.
I had another great group this past weekend and it was nice to see all of them progress!
Great reminders. Your painting demonstrates it well.ReplyDelete
