Lately I’ve been reflecting my transition from pencils to paint. I think my main influence for using prismacolor pencils was that I had good control of the medium, plus I loved being able to get deep, bright colors other pencils couldn’t achieve.
For some reason I am not a brush artist. I absolutely do not think I control a brush very well … no matter the size. Well, let me re-word that. I can control a brush but I don’t like the results when I use one most of the time.
When I think back to my prismacolor days, I realize that I liked having that control Now, for some reason, I have moved on to paint and a freedom in using the paints. I prefer using most anything as a tool rather than a brush, however. And, yes, I do utilize rollers of all sizes. My current paintings are created on both canvas and paper.
