Brushes

Always work with a fine watercolor brush with a good point. In this Video I use very often the DaVinci Kolinsky Brush No. 8

But I also work with brushes from artbrush.com, to learn more click on the link below:

The most important brush is my scrubby brush

Brush Series 130 = Sizes 4 and 8
A very useful brush, which can be used as a scrubby brush to soften the edges, which is needed so often in a painting. It works very well. It also works very well when you want to lift some colours. You can find this brush on www.artbrush.com

 

Reference material

Orange Rose

Reference photo

For the composition of the orange rose I worked in photoshop. The Rose with the leaves weren’t so in real life, so I used leaves from other reference photos and put all the photos in photoshop together. But I hadn’t photos of the complete leaves that is the reason that they are cut at the edges.

Finished Painting

The finished painting is really small in real life, I think around 4×4 inch, but I tried to make a large photo for you so you can see the details better. Of course this means also that it looks harsher on the screen than it really is in real life.
