Your work makes me so happy. I wander my eye around and find so much to enjoy. The mixture of detailed clarity with impressionism is terrific.
Happy Thanksgiving, Michael.

I just love this painting. What size brush do you normally use??? 1/4 inch????

Michael Naples said...

The brush size is a flat #5. It's a little less than a 1/2" wide. I find I can get those broad stokes as well as the fine details all in one brush. Thanks for the comments.

This is an excellent painting. The brushwork, suggested detail and subtle shadows are all exceptionally well done.
