how can I make swirls like this?

http://img1.etsystatic.com/021/0/5305356/il_570xN....

This is made with acrylics, but thats as far as I can get, what brush should I use, and what strokes? I'm still a beginner.

Thanks

    Maybe paint the circle a solid color first- while the paint is still wet in the circle, load your brush with a couple more colors -red, white & orange or yellow perhaps- move the brush freely from the outer part of the circle to the center... practice on plain paper 'til you get the feel of it- maybe add a little 'spin' to the brush at the center of the circle. (Size brush will depend on size of canvas and circles- a one inch brush (long-handled flat tipped for acrylic paint) would be good to start your practice sheet with.)

    large flat, twisted through in manipulation. Spun brush to give double twist.

    Jolly image.
