Clouds and Rocks

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.
