Art Partners: Brushes, and December tomatoes

Every drawing session reminds me of the importance of brushes. Depending on the surface used- fabric, slick paper, toothy paper or fabrics — different brushes perform differently and are a simple yet vital  part of the toolkit. And of course, those luscious orange colors of late Roma tomatoes from the garden, picked green and ripening slowly indoors. Handbuilt ceramic bowl by Eric Jensen.

Different brushes for different drawing tasks: line work, wash using Sumi ink brushes, and my portable watercolor brush.
