If you’ve been on one of my painting workshops, you’ve probably heard me say “dance in a line”. I hope these photos help explain what I mean.
Hold the brush at the tip of the handle, so you’ve maximum movement in it from the wrist.
Move quickly and light-heartedly, without overthinking, as you’d do a twirl.
The line I’m dancing in here is intended to ultimately become part of a foxglove in the foreground of a sheep painting.
My “Ascending Pinks” (below) is full of these danced lines.
