A painterly lesson.

This is a miniature based on Bob Rohm’s book “A Painterly Approach”   available here. It’s a great book if you have a bit of experience with acrylic, oil or pastel.

Rohm lesson

I’ve had a few people ask how I get such fine lines in my minis. Personally I use a very fine rigger that is quite threadbare and a rigger that I left to dry in a curved position giving me a nice arch. The arch gives wonderful control when painting fine lines. As with anything to do with art,the best thing to do is to look at all the advice that’s out there and choose what will work for you.  The branches on this oak tree were done with the curved rigger.
