A friend came by to paint today. It was great. She is a wonderful painter and gave me lots of tips on painting rocks and clouds.
I’m trying to find balance between hard and soft, loose and controlled. She’s controlled while I have trouble letting the paint do what it wants. These are not the same thing.
I resisted correcting my last picture of the day and, despite a little overpainting managed to keep it somewhat loose – only 3 or 4 layers. Walking away and accepting what the work presents is just one more skill to develop.
