I always felt that my strokes were a bit uneven. I had had problems when I wanted to paint detailed works: wobbly lines, no proper control of the tip of the brush. But this is improving a lot with only a few days of doing these drills. So I'm pleased and surprised!
I only have a couple of brushes, and some of them have been with me for years, and their tip is a bit broken, but I love them for my works.
In this class, I'm especially interested in controlling my strokes with the Da Vinci Petit Gris Pur N2 brush, as it lets you have a big range of thickness in your paintings. Thought, it is a bit tricky to paint thin lines if you don't have much experience with it!
Some of my brushes do funny effects at the end, and the non-synthetic one made beautiful shapes.
For the line drills, I used a cheap brush: Golden Sable Serie 1500R N6. On my first day doing lines, I forgot to paint them as close as possible, but it was fun playing with colours and different patterns.
On the next day, I felt much more sure about my strokes and followed better the drills. I also did the flat brush drills and fell in love with them.
Stitches where a change of angle, but they turned out pretty ok!
I will keep on updating the project with the following drills!
