// Gurney Journey
Frank Bramley was a member of the Newlyn School, a group of 19th century on-the-spot painters in Cornwall, England.

Another strategy of this technique is to paint small, thin forms not by pulling a pointed, round brush along the form, but rather by using the thin edge of a big brush dragged sideways.
