For most of my painting years, I have used the dutiful, squared off, bristle brushes to get the jobs done. But in going after a more stylistic and painterly look, I am trying to use round ones until they also feel quite natural in my hand. What I like about the rounds is that they make more linear and calligraphic strokes, and also leave more of a ‘wake’ behind; hence the title: Written Roses.
