Step by Step - Practice Painting / by Mark Bradley Schwartz

Here are some step by step shots of a quick study I did awhile ago. I was trying out some new bristle brushes and wanted to mess around with the brushwork and just see how the paint would go down in general. I was also aiming to keep things simple and avoid over rendering. I find these progressions shots useful to look at after the painting (or drawing) is done to see where things went right or potentially wrong.
