Dennis-what makes a good "lifting" brush ?  All of my brushes are too floppy.

Another great lesson!  :thankyou:

Wow!  Natalie and Jennylynn - Nice painting!  I can't imagine painting along.  Especially this one!  I'm still working on the Arums!  Maybe someday I'll get to that level of skill.  You both amaze me!
