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.
24 x 36
oil on stretched canvas
Slowing down and planning ahead
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!)
