@trevortaylor yes, this is the name. I purchased a serie of their masters choice long flats. It is night and day compared with what I used before. These hold the shape that you give them on the palette or on the canvas, though they remain flexible and soft, yet have some spring. You can form them in a thin straight blade, a larger sharpie like rectangle, or even a round. The craftmanship and service is amazing at this company. They even joined chocolates to the parcel :-)

Almost done with this one :-) I need to keep repeating myself not to paint every strand of hair but the simplified shape.

I received some amazing handmade brushes from an artisan woman in UK, it feels like I never had real brushes before :-) For the first time I feel like I decide what the brush makes, instead of the opposite.

Painting a study of a readhead. I'm struggling with that hair ! I find it hard to get the right balance between showing the paint work and showing the hair detail.

One year after ;-) I finally finished my sun shade painting visor :-) It went not so bad, I'm happy of the result. Sliding the wire inside the finished bias binding was the most challenging. The pattern is available on the internets , it is called "lucent visor" . It has a really huge shade

Working on brushstrokes work, copying a study after Jeremy Lipking. Working in wet oil is really cool once you decide it can be :-)

@welshpixie this one looks so organic , it makes me think of an octopus

@ice Mind to share which headset you are talking about ? I'm very sensitive to noise and I live next to a busy road. I'm looking for ear protections that really work. So far my best experience is with 3M E-A-Rsoft FX earplugs. They are rated 39db and are relatively comfortable. They are great when I don't need to interact with someone. So I also have a pair of silicon EarPeace plugs, that allow me to talk with someone, but do lower the level, about 15 db

My paintings are in display at Manu's optician shop "Optique et Cie" in Couhé 86700 France , during September. Manu is not only a great professional, but also a very nice person. facebook.com/OptiqueCie/ &cie

@welshpixie It looks so much as if the center is bumped ! Beautyful colours , the black lines makes them so rich and vibrant
