Switchin' it up...
With the onset of Spring comes the urge to start afresh, and move from one's comfort zone a bit. I decided recently to order new brushes, of a type called "rounds" that I never used before now. For oil paints I have always painted with long, flat brushes, because they hold quite a lot of paint and I can manipulate them to get all kinds of shapes and edges. So my most recent painting, "Mountain Serenade", which you see here, is the end result of my first attempt at using these round brushes, and I have to say, it was lots of fun - it slowed me down, and made me a bit more deliberate in my strokes...
