This beautiful combination of hues reflects today ’s more sensitive use of color. Color that makes you feel as though you can taste it; color that is both calm and stimulating. Also featured are more gentle brush techniques. You’ll Want to have several old brushes as we work toward a softer, more impressionistic stroke work style. Soft undefined edges are especially nice and dry brushed highlights and shadows help contribute to the softer look. I think that once you try this look, you too, will love it. So sit back from your painting a little more, hold the brush further back on the handle, near the end of the handle and paint a dreamscape.
