Here are a few of my favorite brush friends.
Yes, I know, I said a few. Okay, really - some people buy shoes. I buy brushes. It works out to be about the same except that sometimes I go barefoot.
Each of these brushes has it's own personality, too - it's own 'dance' on the paper.
Here - I'll show you! Take a look at this brush - the Yarka No. 4 Siberian Squirrel brush (3rd from the top in the picture ^^^^ up there).
Let the 'dance' begin! Here comes that big wash...
These little cats tongue brushes have to be my absolute favorites for detail work. They are so easy to control and they hold a LOT of paint. Wonderful for all those manes and tails that seem to appear on my watercolor paper!
If you've never tried one before, it's the perfect excuse to go visit your local art store. Just remember to ask for cats tongue brushes... not ballet slippers!
PS Check this out for some fancy 'foot work' - a little 'piroet' by each of the four brushes featured here.
Grab your dance partner and have some fun!
