Don't Brush Off Brushwork

I am constantly learning brushwork. This weekend I attended a 2 day workshop at the School Of Light and Color in Fair Oaks, CA to help improve my brushwork skills. We were taught how to hold a brush, different ways to lay down paint - thick to thin, color mixing techniques and more.
These are just a few of the pieces. Yes - just a few.  The workshop was outstanding!
A small study to learn layering color without mud.
Another small study to practice brushwork.
A painting to reinforce what I learned.
