Good morning! [Jul. 26th, 2004|11:12 am]

Yay! Matt's home helping me get out a huge post office shipment today (I'm glad - I don't have to walk and carry all of these orders, I'd probably have to make a couple of trips, hehe).

I'm also working on and off on my big painting - you can watch my progress HERE! Hopefully I will have her finished tonight =)

Hurrah for Matty!

You know you have a great husband when they are willing to help. He sounds like a great guy. (you deserve it!)
She looks wonderful! Can't wait to see her done.
Have a GREAT day!

How do you get your shape outlines so straight and accurate? What type of brush(es) do you use? The painting looks amazing so far. =D

Thank you!

I've found that making FAST, very confident strokes will make a good straight line or well-developed shape. The slower you stroke the more likely you will wobble, lost confidence, and make an accidental smudge or wiggle!

I just Royal's cleargrip golden taklon brushes. They are cheap - only $2 or $3 at Michael's. I buy every size they have, but mostly I just use the littlest ones. The golden taklon is a synthetic fibre so it holds its shape well (and is suitable for vegetarians like me, lol).
