I painted most of the day yesterday. It was a bit of a struggle but I felt more confident in what I was doing than I did at the Seattle workshop, so I am improving. I realized that I need to spend more time mixing my initial colors on my palette, and while I’m painting I need to quit making little paint piles all over my palette. I still struggled with my decision process on when I should use cool colors versus warm or neutral colors. But now that I have had some time away from the painting I can see it with a fresh eye, and I feel like I can start a new practice painting and make better choices. So I’m not sure I’m going to finish this one, I think I learned what I could from it.
