New Approach; Large Sale

I tried a few new approaches for this larger sized painting.  
Drawing the large geometrical shapes in charcoal
and using synthetic flat brushes to fill in the colors,
gave me the graphic look I was after.  

Summer Shapes
24 x 36 
oil on stretched canvas 

Charcoal sketch 

Slowing down and planning ahead
also helps.  

I've discovered an easy way to keep my 
bristles straight and flat.
I "form" them with a little lotion 
and leave it on until the next use. 
It comes off easily with some turp and a paper towel. 

(The lotion samples you get at a hotel work great!)
