Brushwork Training

Here are some more specific tips for executing different types of brushstrokes. I usually use the side of my brush and am not afraid to push the brush hard on the board when it helps. I would suggest practicing some of these strokes on a piece of copy paper like I did in these examples until they feel comfortable for you.

I will continue to add more strokes and details over time.
