Daily Art #2971

Day seven on this painting and I’ve pulled out the smaller brushes.

Bristle brushes are great for hard edge strokes full of paint. But if I want to have strokes that have soft edges I choose a synthetic sable, or something link it.

Increasingly I’m seeking out the softer edges within the painting and trying to get the transitions as subtle as possible. I feel like I could practice with using only bristle brushes and going for a Sargent like approach but that just doesn’t work for me.

What went well, what was awesome! Celebrate It!

Great sleep and a shorter AM routine is giving me more time on art before work.

What needs work? What did you learn?

Harness the energy and focus.

How am I going to Optimize moving forward?

The more time I spend deep in work or art the more time I need to balance it with meditation, exercise and oscillation.
