Finished my nuthatch picture – it’ll be framed and for sale in The People’s Gallery very soon…(scanned image to come.)
In my little studio, I’d say one of the most important things I use is definitely a mirror. It’s a must for checking your artwork regularly throughout the day. This applies mainly if you are working in the realist style, and/or working on the human figure, especially faces – if it looks fine the right way round but wonky or in some way wrong in the mirror, then you have made a mistake somewhere, and it’s time to amend!
So I have started using ‘The Masters’ Brush Cleaner, and I really like it. I’ve been wanting an alternative to clean oil brushes other than solvent for a while, and this seems like a fantastic solution. I like the way you can clean the brushes in water…I would never have thought you could do that until now. It does clean other brushes too (watercolour, acrylic etc) so all round, a great product, although it is a little pricey.
