I am on to the second iris. I have figured out which brush works best for the larger petals. I am using my brush that is a blend of sable and synthetic to lay down the water and the paint. I usually use synthetic brushes which don’t hold a lot of water but keeps their point quite nicely. But I can’t move fast enough which means the paint becomes streaky because the area is drying too quickly. I am so glad I thought to try the other type of brush.
There is more work to do on it but I am tired. I am nearly 1/2 way through this large painting.
Day 10 is complete! See you tomorrow.
