A few weeks back, I received an incredible gift of some retired oil brushes. These brushes were from my good friend Jack, fly tier extraordinaire and an all around great guy to have a pint with. When you look through art catalogs, they have brushes categorized by the type of paint that you create with, brushes for watercolor, oil and so on. I decided to use one of the oil brushes with watercolor to paint this fly. I know it may seem like art blasphemy, but if you do not branch out and push the limits a bit, you will never full realize full creative potential. Thanks Jack for the brushes!
