Thank you Sno, Arty, Susan .. yes, fun .. I am always amazed at how little you need to show an object. No one who has seen cows can not see cows but it's just a bunch of organized and controlled brush or knife marks.
Thank Desforges ... I just mish mash till I get something .. actually ordering some brushes today as in a few paintings lately I have used a combo. If I say knife it's all knife .. and if I don't specify it's both.
thank you Zen .. my uncles had them when I was a kid
thanks Moscatel .. insinuation .. seems to be the thing these days LOL
