Today I hit the calligraphy ink and have the black fingernails to prove it. I may also have proved it by dropping my brush on an expensive looking leather bag someone thoughtfully put under my easel. It wasn’t a black bag. But let’s not dwell on that while the owner isn’t.
I haven’t painted in, well, a long time. It was nice to get a feel for the fan brush again (I used a 1″ fan brush for these). Next time it’s bigger paper or a smaller brush for a little more control.
Mayhem, mess and mistakes. Ce la vie.
