With this one I did something unusual for me. I used a bigger paintbrush. Normally when I get going on a painting I stick with the same tiny paintbrush that I start with, but I just thought, "This would be easier to make look nice and smooth with a fatter brush." And of course I should have done this many times before because it did look nicer and it was much faster. I am sure that I have switched to a big brush actually in the past, but I always seem to go back to using only a teeny tiny brush. And then, it is always good to break out of that habit again.
