|first washes and beginning details|
the large background shapes and indeed all the large washes were painted with a #6 princeton neptune quill brush. it holds a tremendous amount of water and allows a very juicy mix of colors to readily flow down the paper leaving a good size bead at the bottom....where the life of a wash resides. the board is at a 45 degree angle which is much less upright than i usually paint for my figures and portraits, but i found that 75-80 degrees of tilt made the wash unmanageable and it cascaded downward out of control.

look like it)
