These are my first, and I went at it in a typical spontaneous mode,
Go-for-it- joyousness and w/o any knowledge...
I have begun the baby steps toward finding the light and form outdoors and found great satisfaction in the work. Particularly the stones were a struggle. How does one paint a pile of beautifully lit stones?
By the time I figured out to create some semblance of the form, the light had completely changed and was nearly gone.
One really needs to make quick accurate decisions because life does not hold still! Perhaps this is the challenge and that which gives us anima, the vital force!
All for now, this week back in the studio, a new pose and a new still life!
