Brick work is great Martin and the shadows are really convincing. Only thing that I noticed was top of right hand wall coming towards you should be angling upwards for the perspective but it’s a good painting.
Great tribute Martin. I used to play in the local league back in the eighties and I met and played him in a single game at an exhibition night. Great company, he gave me 50 start and battered me. Good memories.
You maybe noticed I use it a lot. Your pros are mainly right as for the cons, flops over, not sure my Ranson Hake does that, dry brush? only dip the tips in water then dry slightly on a cloth before adding paint then swipe quickly and it works fine. Admittedly this brush needs a lot of practice but once mastered can save you loads of time.
