Painting Brushes

I sat down to paint and was just getting into it when the Yorkie wanted to sit behind me.  It took some arranging to pack a folding chair with pillows and blankets so he wouldn’t fall through, but finally we got settled (semi-comfortably).  I finished my painting all too quickly and realized I had either to disturb the Yorkie (not really an option) or find something to paint right where I was sitting.  Hence the paint brushes.  Here are my three Princetons and the 1″ Escoda flat.

I like to greyscale my paintings to see if I have the values right.  Looks good.  I find the most difficult thing about painting brushes is the symmetry of the handle.  It is really difficult to get the swelling and tapering the same on each side!
