Small Oyster Shells
I know that one the internet it is sometimes difficult to comprehend the scale of things so let me assure you this is A LOT more oyster shells of one sheet of paper then have previously appeared. That is because along with acquiring the Dr. Ph. Martins watercolor I purchased another Princeton Neptune Oval Wash brush, but this one is only a 1/2in, as opposed to a 3/4in. You might think 1/4in. difference, no big deal, but it is! That 1/4in. takes away a third of the brush area, a full third. Hence the brush does not retain as much pigment & the individual strokes turn out quite differently. Of course, I love the brush & its hand feel, but again some of the nuance disappears when I do not have as much pigment to work with in the brush. This seems to be my unintended theme of the week: not as much nuance. Oh well... next week is another opportunity to try again. Happy Friday Y'all!
