We Had a Record Turn Out for Kan Geiko at East Bay Aikido 2010.01.15

Magic Brushes App on my iThing.
50 minutes.

Thank you to Natalie for the photos! And thank you, as always, to O'Sensei, Gambell Sensei, and all my training partners.

Kan Geiko is winter training. In our case we have class every morning at 6:30 AM.

One of the things I'm really enjoying about Magic Brushes is making brushes that have just enough texture that you can see the direction of the strokes - it allows me to have 'flat' areas of color that aren't actually flat. When I thought of doing this, I conceived it almost like a paper cut - where it would only be about the shapes. I love being able to have the greater complexity and the simplicity at the same time.

You can't see it even if you blow it all the way up, but the white I used here is a clip-art bearded santa face that I made into a brush for my holiday pieces. :)
