In order to create a good work of art, you have a challenge to express yourself and your feelings, while at the same time being truthful to the source of inspiration and your individual style.
Buenos Dias Mi Amigos,
Brushstrokes need to have rhythm in order to provide texture, express volume and convey what the painting is all about. When rhythm is achieved diversity, versatility and asymmetry of application will be apparent in your brushwork.
