I'm sticking with DMP for now except Sargent style don't have a clue on how to do that except just jump in. My drawing was horrendous. My hand can't control the pencil like it used to. Getting old really sucks. Avoid it as long as you can. Maybe I'll take up cooking. I should have no problem with a stir fry.
So you are going the full hog for your trip then?
Not meaning any disrespect @PaulB but my money is on Mark winning this one even though you may bristle for a while. You are going to come back to us a changed man.
those W&N hog brushes are the worst thing I’ve ever used.
I'm not so sure about there being better ways to spend time, I couldn't think of any.
What's the story with your easel problems ? How does it effect your work ?

Ok, I am very curious about this. I have not enjoyed riggers at all so I have avoided them. I have a few inexpensive brushes. What type of effect do you get with riggers? The ones I have seem to be too flexible, lacking enough form. Perhaps it is because I tend to avoid detail work, at least as of yet.
Does any particular color work best?
When I get hand shake, I hold the painting hand with the other hand at the wrist--tightly--when I'm not using a maul stick.
... @PaulB I would like to suggest that you kick it off with copying and pasting the rigger brush post you made into a new thread and others could add to it with their own posts. What do you think?
