Well, I started working on this new piece. I thought I would use the watercolor paint in a heavy fashion, but I decided not to. I'm trying to go slow. Keep the highlights clean, work the shadows down. Although I wanted to abstract it I think I will just go with what I see and don't try for anything in particular. Just paint.
Instead of working in the basement studio, dark and away from everything, I brought the work upstairs near a bright window. What good is a studio if I'm going to be painting in my dining room? Forget it...I know, I have a space, but it's not ideal. Someday, a loft with north facing windows. I can daydream. In the meantime, it's back to work.
