Hair brush on the couch

Hair brush on couch

The couch is a bit rough (I decided to add that after drawing the brush), but I’m pleased that I managed to capture the bristles of the brush reasonably well. And the perspective’s not too bad, either.

I bought my first larger canvas (12×16″) last week, and I have an idea for using it, so keep an eye out for a painting on that here soon. 🎨🖌️🙂

Some decent paints!

New materials!

I’m excited to say, I bought some decent (Schmincke Akademie acrylic) paints today—along with some gesso, new brushes, and other bits and pieces to move my painting forward. Can’t wait to try out the new colours!
