Brush Collection

Tools of the trade.
All lined up and ready for work!
Mostly watercolor brushes, 
an awl and calligraphy nibs.
My favorite brush is the rigger.
I've trimmed off most of the hairs on one of them
to get an extra fine line.

What do you use the awl for?

sometimes, not often, i make little stab books or stitch pieces of my work together and the awl is great for piercing through paper.

ahhhh, I see. Your work is gorgeous. I love the detail. I find it difficult to get the kind of fine detail you do despite the myriad of brushes I own.... :)
