RELAX, WITH A VERY LIGHT TOUCH.

Anne D'Alton's Artworks, Anne D'Alton's Artwprks, illustrtation

I watched a programme about a painting challenge yesterday and whilst I enjoyed the various ways with which each artist approached their subject, one thing I really noticed was the very tense way in which almost all of them held their drawing and painting (brushes and palette knives, etc.) implements.  In this illustration, note how the brush is barely held in the artist’s hand.  This takes time to master, but is well worth the effort.
