Dennis, I have seen that you changed the brush from a round one to a flat when you started painting the flower pot. may I ask why? I also saw that you're using a triangular brush for lines. Isn't this a good application for a script or liner brush?
Sorry, I have another mention: in the description you refer for the painting are to be 450x300. I think that is a typo in there should be 400x300.
Thank you,

Doina, there is no particular reason why I changed from the round to the filbert brush. I could just as easily completed the whole painting with the round brush, even the thin lines, as the brush also has a nice sharp point to it. I only used it for the leaves.
You have very sharp eyes to have seen I am using a triangular brush. Again an ordinary scrip/liner/rigger brush would have sufficed.
I normally have a large selection of brushes at hand and grab the first one that looks like I can get the job done with :2funny:
You're correct about the measurements. Will have to rectify that immediately. I did a copy and paste and did not check it properly :knuppel2:

Thank you Dennis, I do not want to be a troublemaker, but those questions persisted in my head, and I just ask. Thanks for the explanation. :)

No problem, Doina, those were all legitimate questions. That's what we are here for - to answer any questions you may have. Remember, no question is a stupid question O0

Really loved this lesson, Dennis! Wish you'd do an entire course on still lives! I had to put an extra bauble on the vase due to a boo boo! Anything I should change?
Cheers,
Sharon

Thanks Doina and Val! And I loved the glazing techniques in this lesson. Not sure if I'm too fond of the gecko - may paint over him later!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Nicely done, Sharon.  Love the vibrant colors on the baubles.  Nice folds on the curtain.

Love it Sharon!  I watched the video today and can't wait to paint it.  Really like the shine on your vase.
