Brush Off

6"x6" oil on gessoboard
 These old worn paint brushes had been given the 'brush off' a long time ago. They have been well used over the years and sitting around  the studio, but before I get rid of them I thought they deserved to be painted! I used water soluble oils for this and I am gradually getting used to them. They seem to be more transparent then regular oils and very intense colors so it's just a matter of being a bit more focused when I mix my colors. I think I will stay with them!!
