I’ve just completed a very challenging set of commissioned paintings entitled Empty Nesters. Since every branch of each nest needed to be the same, I worked on both paintings at once… one branch at a time. For 90% of the paintings I used a #00 size brush. I also used a very limited palette: Sienna, Burnt Umber, Prussian Blue, Cobalt Blue and Cadmium Yellow.
