Learn How to do the C-Stroke

This stroke is one that you will use often, especially if you do One Stroke Painting. The C-Stroke is a stroke that uses the technique where you start on the chisel, flatten your brush, and then end up on the chisel. It could also be considered the U-Stroke if you it turned.

Begin on the chisel and when you start to add pressure to the bristles, pull the brush toward you. As you reach the bottom, begin to lessen the downward pressure. Curve around to the right, or left if you are left handed and put up on the chisel.

Be careful not to pull up too soon. You need to keep thinking chisel-flat-chisel while painting this stroke. The bottom of the C will be the thin line.

Do not forget to practice this stroke before painting on your project. You will need to get the feel for it before you use it. Remember; practice makes perfect!
