`Geisha in the Rain' 12" x 16" Saunders Waterford Not
When choosing the photograph I wanted something different and worked on Charles Reid's dictum of picking offbeat subjects. Overall I think it works quite well. It was mostly painted using my new Da Vinci Artissimo 44 No 2 Kolinsky Mop purchased from Jacksons. The brush head is roughly equivalent to a good number 12 standard Kolinsky although the handle is shorter. I used a number 4 for the detail in the features. I actually did the drawing the previous day so when I was at the Hall could concentrate solely on the painting. I find this is beneficial.
