Brush Strokes With Lesley - Fun for all ages!

New brush to try!

Recently I was painting a short haired dog.  I wouldn't say I struggled with the fur, but he was a black dog and I wanted to add more definition to the fur and the way the light would be hitting the fur.  I asked one of my past instructors for some assistance and she suggested that I pick up a "Filbert Rake" brush. 
I of course jumped right out to buy one.  I'm amazed at the difference it makes when painting fur!  It looks a lot like a flat rake brush but because of the curved head, each stroke creates multiple levels of lines.  I'm using it now on another short haired dog portrait for a client and so far I'm very impressed with this little brush. 
I'm sure that it would be good for painting grasses as well.  I'm hoping to give that a try soon as well. 
Why not pick one up and give it a try!

I am very fond of paintings, especially about our mother nature. I have a friend and his job was to paint cute little animals. I really appreciated those kinds of artworks. It was good to hear that you painted a short haired dog. I wonder what it looks like. But I am sure it is amazing. It is true that painting the fur is a little harder to compare to other elements in your work. I recently tried painting and I painted a cute piggy. My girlfriend was so amazed on my painting even though I am not that good at painting.
