I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting much of late. I spend most of my time managing my sister’s care. She had a stroke about six years ago, but was able to continue living at home with help until April of last year. She cannot walk any more and requires a lot more help. She is now in a nursing home. I live in Georgia, but she is in Mississippi. I spend most of my time in Mississippi these days. I do have my older computer here and can continue painting.
My Painter 2019 class is still available. A few folks in that class requested that I do another Painter brush making class. I did the last one in 2012. I started it last week and hope to have it available in a month or sooner.
Lately, thick paint interests me. I have mixed watercolor with thick paint and that has been fun. I want to perfect thick paint and be able to use it in a very thick way. I have made some new brushes that I really like. Some are palette knives but the ones I am liking the most are thick paint variants with very stiff bristles. Here are a couple of examples. The first one started as watercolor washes and then I added thick paint.
In the next one, I am using only thick paint and the variants are palette knives.
And the last one is also using Thick Paint, but the variants have very stiff bristles. I like this look a lot.
When I feel like the brushes are complete, I’ll post them. It has been a while since I have given out any variants on my site. I like how these are looking and hope you do too.
