Making marks

Another session with Thomas Kitts, today it was all about making marks with the brush. I got to practice with some of my own brushes and with some of his, too. Have you heard of a brush called an "Eggbert"? Looks like a filbert with longer bristles. I liked the marks I could make with it and the bounce of the longer bristles was fun to use.

I like learning how to use oil paint. More homework for me, to practice my brushwork. I'm excited!

that brushwork looks like a landscape! I like it.

Save that! You know it'll become a painting someday. If it's not already.

Sadly, I wiped it down and left it with Thomas. More brush work to practice this week. Maybe something will turn out worthwhile. You never know!

Every medium demands that discipline; be it practicing marks or scales. Soon you will be on "Auto Pilot."

You do indeed sound excited it must be so marvellous to be in such a frame of mind I hope it leads to more of your wonderful art.
