Cabbage and Striped Cloth
For this one I used a big fat old bristle brush, misshapen so it looked like a shoe with the bristles curving. I can't believe you can get so much detail - or really any at all - with such a brush. I like this cabbage the best so far. It is no Miss America, plain except for this cloth I have to drag out every time, but I like the clarity of the entire painting, and the proportions of the elements. Maybe it could be an Amish cabbage, no offense to any of you who might be Amish. And also, the greatest thing about that brush -- you have to load up the paint on it to do anything on the canvas, so you end up with this beautiful fat paint surface. Worth the bungling.
