Bright days but grey.
I’m using a longer bristled filbert. A classic filbert Size 10 produced by ‘Rosemary and Co Artists Brushes’. My previous filbert is a standard brush and after years of use the bristles have worn too short to produce the blends of colours I need in skies and water. The new longer bristled brush produces smoother blends, the ‘spring’ in the bristles makes it easier, less scraping and lifting of paint.
This painting uses only 3 colours (Raw Sienna, Raw Umber, Cerulean Blue) plus black and white. There is no medium used, only White Spirits.
Here’s the painting process, see you soon.
