Flat brushes and a sprayer

I somehow came back to where I started – ballet dancers. Planning to make a few more for a small poster/postcard series. I really like these gracious shapes, and there is quite some room for experimenting with the materials. For example, this cloud of colour surrounding the figure is quite thickly applied paint further spread by a sprayer. Yes, I just paint on paper and then I spray on top, and it moves in funny shapes – will definitely try more of this technique.

And then flat brushes – probably the most irreplaceable instrument when it comes to painting architecture and cityscapes (I have 5 or 6 brushes in different sizes)). They are also very good for painting ballet dancers’ fluffy skirts (I love the word “tutu”) – makes it look really airy and quite naturalistic – I am very satisfied with the result 🙂
