After Mea posted her texture practice page, which I found quite useful, I thought I'd share some practice I did. I was surprized how useful comparing all my brushes at once was. I've used them all, but somehow this little practice session brought it all into focus. And it was surprisingly enjoyable. More relaxing than struggling with a proper painting. A bit like exploring a new beach.
Hope someone else finds this idea useful.

As in any trade, it's good to know what you can do with each of your tools. Good on you for having a good old play about. Surprising what one can learn.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:
