brushes of Billy Showell
Yesterday I received the brushes I ordered with Billy Showell.
Wow! they are lovely. Long hairs and a beautiful fine point. Just the brushes I was looking for and great additions to the brushes I already had.
I am studying hard in working with watercolor, but it takes a lot of time to finish one.
And yesterday I ruined a watercolor painting of an orchid. I made a red smudge and I could not get rid of it. So I decided to paint a background. But I know that I am not good at backgrounds and .......................... yes, I ruined it:-)))))) Ah, well, I learned from it.
So today I started a new one, this is the very first stage.
The grey dark forms are the stems, I covered them with masking fluid.
The other pictures are some of my colourmixing cards I make when I am painting. They are realy useful references while painting.
