    Hi, Linn. I blend with the oil brush. Set at a size of 30% more or less, and 30% load, 70% thinner. This varies according to the area being blended. This was all painted with just Oil Brush.

    So kind to share the knowledge. I love the confidence you put on each brush stroke.

    Sandy, Jas, Coops - Thank you for the comments. I try to remember to do in-progress stills as I go. The problem happens when you're really into it, and can't stop at a particular spot. For this one, I put my mind in "Teacher" mode, and proceeded logically. This produces an adequate image, but it removes a layer of passion from the piece. It also truncates the depth of involvement.

    Silvy - Thanks for the comment. I find that the oil brush is my favorite tool for blending. I'm working a piece right now which is primarily Airbrush, but I'm doing the blending with oil brush.

    wonderful portrait Skylar, and great video, I am happy to see that there is another way to blend, as it is so difficult to blend in AR much different than the traditional way of oil painting, so I will be trying your way, P.S. glad you made a point of real painting and digital, I wanted to but, not being a member that long, did not know if I had the right....thanks .........Pat
