More From The 8 in. Brush

I couldn't wait to try out more variations and strokes with "the brush"; what I hadn't realized is how long I would spend on setting up; measuring, lying down the tape, masking, all for that brief moment of whoosh. And then it's over. And it's back to setting up.

  3. Isn't it interesting how some of the simplest images are so complex in the making? The practice sheets look like a possible series as well. Enjoy!
