January 14th Sketch - Bristle Brushes

Just for fun, I thought I would work up a page of some of my bristle brushes.  My favorite to illustrate being the Zoltan Szabo brush due to it's aging.  I had fun painting the old stained wood, peeling handle, and the rust stains.  Still works beautifully and to me has true character.

Worked in the Stillman & Birn Zeta using Micron 01 Brown, Light Brown, and Black.

Watercolors used were Winsor & Newton.

With this page I lightly sketched with pencil and then painted each.  Pen and ink was used after everything dried for detailing.
