I use a size 12 round hog bristle brush for foliage. The colors in this
painting - cobalt blue, ultramarine blue, crimson, chrome green, burnt
umber, burnt sienna, titanium white. this painting was done in the 80s -
chrome green is no longer available. If you need more info, go to my
'paintwithlen' website.

"If you're not sure where to put the paint, just shut your eyes and put it
on." For artists doing this style, this should be a quote of the century! I
create realistic drawings. Speed painting is something I admire immensely.

STUNNING! Love the way you've done that waterfall, I'd never have known how
to create a waterfall before seeing this. Just wonderful, you fill me with
confidence and joy watching your laid backness and nonchalantness like it's
not the end of the world to make a mistake. Excellent stuff, can't wait to
catch up with all the rest of your websites etc. :o)
