Silver

Another week, another beer can study.  I returned to small brushes and returned to my normal style after last week’s experiment.  Next week I may take the experiment in the opposite direction and do a layered/glazed painting of a can.  The printed aluminum is an ideal candidate for glazing and getting really deep, rich colors.

Big brush

I challenged myself to do this painting using a 3/4″ filbert brush instead of the 1/2″ and 1/4″ flats I normally use.  The flat brushes let me paint crisp edges and thin lines.  The filbert was an exercise in letting go and loosening up.  I also added a couple extra cans to push me for speed.
