Methods and Madness

Sometimes I paint fast and loose

Other times quite controlled

The subject decides the method

But each work has the same goal:

A painting that is successful

And beautiful to behold!

Licks, Whips and Brassy Tricks Watercolors by Bertie Brown - Art is Instrumental

Licks, Whips and Brassy Tricks

original musical motif watercolor w/trumpet,trombone: 11" x 14"

Sophie Says

I want a quick

lollipop lick

while I ponder a bit

over licorice whips

it’s too bad, you know

that trumpets and ‘bones

can’t partake of these

and still play with ease!
