"Hide and Seek 2"

Click Here for Purchase information

This is another mid size painting maintaining the painterly look of my small ones. I used this composition before, but I really like it and decided to paint it again. I used very big brushes (2" wide) to do this. I may have to use brooms and mops if I paint a 30" x 40". If you like to paint large, do you use very large brushes? Would you tell me what kind of large brushes you like and where you get them?

Nice work. I've been following your blog and am impressed with your work.

Utrecht imports 2", 3", etc. bristle brushes from Germany. They look like house painters' brushes but with a longer handle. Reasonably priced. For regularly large flat and bright brushes, Princetons are cheap but real work horses. Robert Simmons are pricier but are classics and among the best.
