Sometimes Size Really Does Matter

A few months ago my Mom and I went to Hawaii for vacation. I took lots of pictures of fish when I was snorkeling and now I’m painting a few. The problem with fish (creatively) is that they have a lot of tiny angles. And for some reason I decided to paint on smaller canvas than Inormally do. Which means – I can’t use my normal set of large brushes.

I know some say it’s not the size of the tool, it’s how you use it. But so far, I have not been able to figure out how to use a large brush to fill a tiny precise corner of canvas. Its like trying to hammer a tack into the wall with a mallet – it just doesn’t work.

So now I’m sitting at my easel all hunched over, trying to work these tinybrushes into tiny corners. It’s still kind of driving me crazy becauseI hate to work that tight and tense. But – I am making progress, which is fabulous. Guess I just needed the right sized tool for the job. Sometimes smaller really is better. 😉
