I love the recent paintings. How on earth do you paint wisps of hair so well? The detail in the little girl's hair is amazing. What kind of brushes do you use? I have some VERY small brushes that don't leave such perfect lines. I usually get a blob that fizzles out as I stroke along the canvas.

Beautiful work! I'm always amazed by how fast you can finish your paintings and still get perfect detail and texture. I can't imagine how much patience it must have taken to paint every blade of grass in first painting!

^^^ I just use normal paint brushes, some finer tipped ones. The easiest way to do little details like hair with acrylic is to water it down a bit, that way it doesn't blob and fizzle like you said, and then just add layers if you need to darken it ;)

^^Thanks! I know i have a tendancy to do them quickly simple because i have a bad habit of losing interest if they take too long lol! And then the end result isn't as good i find if im not atleast a little enthusiastic about my work.
Also, it's handy when i have a bunch to get done!
