Some progress! spent another Saturday doing oil studies…it’s starting to feel a bit like it did two years ago, when I was painting every weekend. I’m trying to get over over painting too lean – it’s getting better each time. Plus a friend of mine recommended I switch to sables (vs bristle). I think they’re working a bit better for me. You can maybe see the difference in brushtrokes between the first (bristle) and second (sable)?
