I was visiting my uncle, who is an artist who formerly worked for Disney\'s animation studios. He now works for Big Idea (VeggieTales). He had all of his brushes in a caddy on his drawing desk,which also has a light mounted on it. I used that light to make this image.

Makes one feel connected to the unseen artist.

You hit the challenge on the head with this one (in terms of lighting/composition etc), however it seems everything has a tiny bit of blur (possibly handshake?). This detracts from the overall feel of the image. However, in a challenge where the majority of people have misinterpreted `low-key` as `underexposed`, this stands out. I am not going to lie and say you will ribbon with this image, but I wouldnt be surprised to see you in the top 20. Which in a challenge with over 200 entries, is something to be pleased about. Well done.

I like the lighting on this one, with silhouttes on the bottom. The brush on the right may be distracting a bit, maybe one brush is enough?

This image really spoke to me. I was an oil painter for years - haven't done any recently. Love the image. Especially the shadow detail.

If this was a little sharper I would love this photograph

I wish the main brush were better focused. I like the idea and the frame is good. Nice title too.
