February 28, 2014  (Check back tomorrow for the winner of the February Give-Away

There is a very good article in this month's Artist's Magazine about Qiang Huang.  I have been following his work for a long time because I especially love his brushwork and the abstract quality of his work.  There is a great step by step with photos. He also described his materials and techniques.  You can see hundreds of his paintings on Daily Paintworks.  He uses Robert Simmons Signet brushes that I already have and Creative Mark Quality that I immediately ordered.  There not even expensive. In fact they are a bargain and are on sale at Jerry's Artarama.  I used them today and love them, but will have to see how they hold up. 

Here's a photo of the brushes: (note: the handles are short)

I will post it on Daily Paintworks. ( Another poor quality photo, still not sure what I do wrong)
There are some places where there are soft edges that mingle with the background.  I'll probably do this again because I am not satisfied with the edges.
