Daily Sketch #23

All brushes have handles and bristles. There are many different kinds of brushes: paintbrush, hairbrush, toothbrush, scrub brush, makeup brush, and more.

Find at least two different brushes in your home. Look at them closely. Now feel them. How are the handles different from the bristles? Do they have the same texture? Compare the bristles. How are they different?

Now draw them. What kind of marks will you make to show the softness of the bristles in your drawings? How will you show the hardness of the handles?
