A portrait painter has been painting portraits for years without a brush.
But now, he has found an alternative.
Edward Hopper painted portraits by hand in the 1800s, and then in oils, using his own brushes.
He had a unique way of making his paint.
“I had a brush that I used to paint the skin of the animal and then a little bit of pigment on the skin,” Hopper said.
“It was very important for me to be able to do it at a very high level of accuracy, and that was because I was painting the skin.”
The painter painted portraits at the same time as he was working on the paintings in oils.
“I was very happy to be doing the oils, and so I took the time to paint my own oil and paint my brush,” Hoppers said.
“It was an important part of the process, and I loved painting the oils because I had a lot of time and energy.”
Hopper said painting the portraits was the best way to give his family some peace of mind.
“There was a very good feeling to being able to say, ‘I’m not going to have to go into that pain that I was going through,’ ” he said.
But there was one thing that Hopper didn’t like about painting the oil.
“Painting was really important to me, but I wanted to be sure that it wasn’t going to go all the way through the paint, so I would be sure I didn’t leave any kind of residue on the canvas,” Hopping said.
He tried to avoid that by using an adhesive to seal the edges of the brushes.
“They are all in very small parts.
You can actually see the adhesive that is in there,” Hopped said.
Now Hopper has found a way to paint a portrait without the brush, and even without a stick.
“For some reason I’ve been able to paint without a painter’s brush,” he said, laughing.
“So it’s a new technique.
It’s a very exciting technique to be used in a portrait.”
