Brush Work and Edges

I recently purchased this delightful 8 x 10 on line 
from David Shevlino to share as a reference when teaching.  
He is a master at brush work and edges, 
and that topic comes up frequently in my workshops.  

"Cow Study"
8x 10 oil
by David Shevlino. 

We all struggle with "Paint handling" and
I think its because it the most personal
and truly expressive facet of painting.

And it takes confidence and skill!

I've been experimenting with synthetic brushes this week 
(as opposed to natural bristle) 
and it's daunting. 

Every tiny shift and decison shows!
