update on an oil painting

It's progressing nicely. Pleased with it thusfar. Background I had planned may prove to be difficult so waiting to see if it's even required.

the importance of using the right piece of kit

Having recently moved into oils, on a smaller scale I realise my beloved brushes need updating. I have oh, say 40 or so. Plenty of miniature for fine detail,then general oil and acrylic rounds, flats, liners and filberts but little in the way of mid-range detail.

With that in mind have bought some new kit; baby soft sables that have a bit of tautness to them, well- enough for what I want.There are three combs, yes. And an angled brush for tight spots. They are hideously expensively priced but I was lucky to get a good deal on them.

Spending a bit of quiet time chilling with the cat and my sketchpad, very enjoyable.

rough field sketches

Tagged along with the boy to Usan beach, took the opportunity for some quick mark making in my moleskine while he got on with realising his photography series.
