I am going to show you how to use the Scallop stroke to paint a pansy.
At the end of the post there is a video that shows me painting the pansy if you wish to see my brush in motion.
I start with a pattern for placement of my strokes.
I first do the two top strokes,
they are small scallop strokes.
for the side scallops I flipped the brush so the red is on the outer edge rather than inner.
One scallop stroke on each side.
Then I do the two bottom scallops.
They kind of blend together.
Another shot of the bottom stroke with first one done waiting for the second.
Then you add the dot for the center and a few whiskers.

It is short and the only sound you can hear is the clucking of my chickens in the background.
