Learning to paint and loving it!



The other weekend my husband and i visited Ann Arbor,which we often do. We love the atmosphere and the shops of this diverse University of Michigan town. Well, I bought two new sable WN brushes and let me tell you what a different experience painting has been. The brushes hold an incredible amount of water OR paint depending how you use them. So being playful and loving process more than anything i play and play. Seriously wonderful brushes.

Oh Cathy, I know what your saying about the WN brushes.. are they not the best? I bought my first one 20 years ago a #8 and still have it. and still use it. It lost its point finally and just recently got another. but they will last almost a lifetime.. so expensive but so worth it.. Like you as soon as I had that brush I knew it was magic. ! BJ

Mmmm, Ann Arbor. When are we going to meet there?

It's so cool to hear that your art is enhanced by these brushes. My dad and brothers have always said what a difference good brushes make in the other kind of painting. It certainly makes sense.

And seriously wonderful results. Love this watery, pigment-rich, close up.
Are you familiar with the watercolor florals of Emil Nolde? They are my absolute favorite (and hard to find online, but you will see a few) and your style often evokes him for me.
