"Peony" 6"x6" oil on canvas

These vases are large, so I had to step back from the set up to get a good cropping.  Wanted to keep this one loose so I used large brushes.  I have been using Silver Bristlon, brights lately, sizes 2 through 10.  They do tend to take paint off as much as put it on.   Regular bristle brushes lay the paint on better but it hard to get a nice sharp edge.  I go back and forth.    I like using brights and sometimes flats because you can work wide or make a thin line.  Very rarely do I use a filbert or round.
