Val, I'm so amazed at the progress you're making with all your watercolour paintings!   :yippee:


You did great on this one!  I really like all of it including the people.  I like the pose of the fellow in the blue shirt!   O0


You've had fun using both big brush and little.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: Lillian. I'm still unnerved by adding people. I am reasonably pleased with these...they do resemble people somewhat, the blue guy is my favourite too. I tried to make the orange one look like walking in the water...I think it looks more like it has 'gumby' legs!  :2funny: practice, practice, practice!  :D
Cheers, Val

Hmmmm, interesting brush, Val.

I really like it when you folks post your tools.  It helps me visualize what you are talking about.  Thanks.

Hi everyone

This one wasn't so much a "Hake Brush" demo for me as it was a "Gesso Brush Demo" because not having a Hake Brush, I had to use a hogs hair bristle Gesso brush instead. Dennis seemed to have a lot easier time with his nice soft Hake Brush.

Gesso Brush Demo!

Let me know how you think it turned out.

I think it turned out great Batman! The texture looks different which gives it a nice interesting touch - almost like you used super rough watercolor paper. Love your color/tonal contrasts, gives your painting a richness to it 8)

 :thankyou: Tousabella.

Hmm, I had a look previously, and the best I could find a set for was around $20.
