This month, I had the opportunity to be featured in Painting World Magazine, a painting publication for artists of all levels and mediums. The magazine is published 7 times per year in the United States and internationally, and offers DIY and painting projects from a wide range of talented artists in the fine art industry.
Mops come in a variety of hair types and styles, such as the oval mop, which is a brush with innovative synthetic hair that is crimped and treated to mimic the shape and movement of natural hair. This brush is recommended for softening and blending, as well as varnishing and decoupage because it shows minimal brushstrokes.
A fan brush creates a thick-and-thin lined appearance in a single stroke, which looks beautiful on mixed media backgrounds. The fan is a staple for landscapes and foliage due to the shape of the brush, which spreads (or fans) but, allowing paint to be applied in multiple directions in a single stroke. Follow along with the image of our three step painting technique guide to learn how to use a fan. Visit Willow Wolfe at her home studio or a variety of workshops to discover what your brush can do for you! For info sessions you may also contact Willow to book a private one hour event. Event costs are $20/person.
