The Amazing (and very useful) Wut Brush: A sequence


I've been exploring wood cut-outs since repairing my scroll saw, and it's been a lot of fun.

Started out with a few sketches, and settled on this one.

I pre-primed the board with with sienna gesso, then drew it with a brush and black acrylic.

Pre-mixing four grey values helps speed the painting process. Multiple thin glazes of color finish the piece.

This one was too long for my saw, so I had to cut it apart. Learned quite a lot in this whole process, mostly about planning ahead way more effectively. While glue solved this problem, it was clear to me that cutting out prior to painting saves a lot of time and hassle.

And the finished brush. It's about 26" tall.

I didn't plan on this one having anthropomorphic qualities, but it just happened. 

Thanks for checking it out!
