Painting of the Day: "In the Morning"

  Done in Watercolor on 140lb cold pressed paper, by Jacob Chang.

"In the Morning", 29" by 38" (74 cm by 97cm)

  If you have seen one of my earlier post regarding different types of brushes, you could remember me talking about hake brushes. You know, the long-ish, soft brushes. Well, here is a prime example of how to utilize a hake brush.

  Jacob Chang put masking fluid on the still life. Then used a hake brush to draw in the background. He then removed the masking fluid, drew in the subjects of the painting, and added details to it too. The results is a beautiful, soft looking piece. He used quite a few lost edges, which adds to the dream like quality of the piece.
