Thanks for looking and taking time to comment Gill, HtptheCat,Syilvia, Darla and ValriAry.
Shelley the brushes i use are just small rounds No 0, No 1, No 2 (see picture). I paint using glazes with tiny brushstrokes making sure some of the underliying glaze shows through, so when i have finished you can see some of the very first glaze and all subsequent ones, this helps build the colour and densitity of the fur.......hope that makes sence :confused: .I have uploaded a close up shot might mean more than my explenation.
Thanks again for your input.
