Red Rock Dusting

I sometimes like to use only 1 brush for a painting.  I feel I can learn better brush handling as well as controlling the use of only portions of the bristles as needed.  it can be a challenge but I feel the effort is worth the learning experience.  This painting was done entirely with a #24 long handled brush using a dry brush method wet into wet with a loose painterly style. This was also done without a sketch or drawing - a level line was drawn in for the horizon and the rest is brush work.

The Brush

This painting is 10 x 20 on heavy linen paper.  Painted in a loose painterly style with the bright and bold colors so well know in the Southwest.  The Southwest holds a special place in my heart having live in Arizona for 7 years and New Mexico for 5 years.

Hope you enjoyed this presentation
