I just lost my entire day's work for yesterday. I used ctrl F in Windows Explorer and sought files with the same name...nothing. I looked through Adobe CS5 Bridge in every drawer I visited yesterday...nothing. I am working on a piece that will be 5 feet wide and 2.5 feet deep. That means everything I do (with a 3 pixel brush) is done a million times. And now I have to do it over. My only solace is that I kept track of the brushes I used...and choosing the brush is half the work!
I once heard Jeremy Sutton (http://www.jeremysutton.com/) say that he was filled with anxiety until he got his brush chosen. From then on, painting was fun. On my next blog I'm going to show you how I keep track of my brushes. Jeremy, I thank you for your candor. You got me started on a good technique!
