The busy-ness of Christmas is over (for the most part) and after napping yesterday, I played with a watercolor paint brush my husband gave me for Christmas. I could have bought a dress for what he paid for this brush but so far I love it! It holds a lot of paint and still gives a fine line. A painting teacher once told me to buy the best supplies you can, they make a difference in how good your painting will be. I do believe she was right and I am not sending my brush back, but I sure could use some new clothes!
Here is a watercolor (8″x8″) I painted last night. I purposefully skewed the perspective for interest but I’m thinking I should have skewed it more! Now to see if, with time, my new brush will make me a better painter!
and here is my brush!
