I have not touched a paint brush in almost a year, and I have not posted anything here about my painting in quite a while, yet I have been feeling the itch again lately and am preparing to start up again.
To those ends, I recently cleaned out the building where I used to paint back in the woods behind my house, and I ran across a number of small practice pieces I thought worth posting here. All of these were done in order to test out a new brush and/or a new technique. None of them are great, but I find them of interest for one reason or another, and they are different than the direction I'm thinking of heading with my next painting sessions.
Anyway, here they are.
