2023 04 12-13 day 293-294 of doing art every day for a year (mostly – I took sick days off). I’m doing something art related every day for a year in an effort to develop art skills. I’m very much a beginner.

I did this painting using four brushes:

  • Calligraphy/Monoline (for sketching)
  • Ittai Manero’s Crazy Nebula brush (for the nebula in the sky and reflection)
  • Ittai Manero’s Randomized Dots 01 (for the stars)
  • Ittai Manero’s Super Wet Flat Brush (for everything else)

The monoline brush is a standard Procreate brush. The Ittai Manero brushes were free as part of his freebie packs.

I have projects where I’ve used 15 or 20 brushes, maybe more, and I’ve done projects where I’ve used only 2 or 3. It’s interesting limiting myself to only a few brushes. I don’t think it makes art necessarily better, but I learn from it nonetheless.
