I was looking forward to trying this subject larger than the 8"x6" (7/15's post "Day at the Mall") and am trying to get up some work for a show in October, so have spent the last couple of days working on this version. I enjoyed using different brushes--actually used a size 10 somewhere in there! I also tried to apply thicker paint--I can't believe how hard that can be! With the brights I love to use, I find I put the paint on pretty thin. I found it easiest to carry more paint with the filberts. But then, I love the marks the brights make--no reason not to use them all, right? At any rate, it sure feels good to paint something not quite so tiny!!
