Kind of an idiot...

Struggling to get long, smooth shaded areas on a portrait, I kept moving back from the paper with the Micron Takumi.

But right next to it in the holder was my Eclipse Takumi. My intention for it was for large areas and quicker coverage.

Should I have just put a few drops of paint in it and used it for the subtle shadows around the eyes and nose? Or is it just my lack of control in terms of doing a slow line without getting blotchy?
 
Shading can be done with a micron, distance and the right angle is needed regardless of the brush used. Minimal trigger pull, very little is done with the trigger full throttle
 
when I look at the portrait I get the feeling you are on the right track but you are going a bit to fast
Give the paint the time to dry before the next layer
