Sword Liner


I will be the first to admit that when I originally got this Sword Liner brush I was disappointed with it




it felt as though I had completely lost control - instead of firm control on the brush it was 'floppy' compared to my other brushes




then recently I picked it up again.  I was painting some trees, loose style and found this brush amazing....it worked beautifully and stopped me being too precise with a subject that needed to be spontaneous.

Here are some quick sketches to show you....







and really good for grasses...



So pleased I didn't give up on this brush.

  5. What an interesting little brush. Fun to try new things. Sometimes we just have to learn what the tool does before writing it off. Glad you figured it out. I can see lots of sea grass being painted. :)

  16. Ann, I have never heard of that brush but I see that it is very useful for making grasses and twigs and such. I like your illustration. The brush adds such fluidity.
