EDM #61 a grouping of 2 or more similar objects


These are old (antique?) brushes from an estate sale, they were given to me several years ago by my sister Jean-- this is the first I have used them -- they were wonderful models they stayed put and never moved unless I told them to. This is watercolor pencil and ink in my moleskine -
PS -- I have found that lightly rubbing a white eraser over the moleskine sketch book page removes the sizing and prevents the washes from beading up on the page. This is easier for me than mixing washes with a little soap.

Love the antique look and soft colors of these "models" : )! The family blog you talked about seems like a wonderful idea too.

This is a great painting. I have the feeling that there is a story behind the brushes, that they have a history. Very nice!

These are terrific. They sure do look antique and well-used ones too.

You've done them sOo well. They look delightfully antique. Could you have them be 'not so well behaved' next time? ;-)
