Here's a time lapse video of me painting this design:
I love using my flat brushes to "stamp" out uniform lines, which you saw in the video. My current favorites used in this design are Loew Cornell's 1/4" 73000C series flat brush, and TAG's 3/4" flat one stroke brush. I'm starting to get into the angled brushes now too, which I had never really used before! I've really been gravitating toward my Cameleon filbert brushes when I need to soften and blend out shadows and highlights. I never thought that was what I'd use them for so much, but they work great for it...they are super fluffy and thick. Most of this was done using Paradise Beach Berry and black. I used a little of Global's new Deep Merlot and Rose Brown when darkening the red for shadows too. And, of course, I top EVERY design off with Wolfe black and white for my darkest darks and brightest whites!
Thanks for the inspiration today, Caribou, and of course the yummy in my tummy! Here's a little free promo art for you, ha ha!
