329. Ursus Thibetanus

Drawing fur is really hard. I have to constantly remind myself not to draw hair, but draw strokes and emphasize where there is lights and darks in the fur.

On the left of the bear is an attempt of highlights with gouache but I am going to toss these particular paint brushes away as they seem to serve no purpose for the watercolor medium (yet they were sold as such).

See, I have this cool mat in which all my tools have their never changing place. When I am in the flow I do not think much, and grab one of three worthless brushes in there, and make the best of it.

Isn’t the definition of insanity, “doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results”?

Lamy what were you thinking selling these brushes? They are neither pointy or consistent, the bristles look like someone yanked out hairs from a squealing pig one at the time, and placed a bunch of them in that brush as oneven as possible.

It is like shooting pool with a crooked cue with a half broken tip, oh and where is the chalk?
