I used my previous tracing/drawing and the photo reference (in yesterday's post) to do tonight's painting. Half way through it I forgot why I was doing this exercise..oh, that's right, I just wanted to link big shapes together and also see if good planning helps get the idea down quickly. A better experiment would have employed more shapes and color----(Next time)! It was interesting to approach painting in a new way...it was like stepping back in time and working alongside Neil. I'll watch the other Boyle DVD in the near future and I may paint this yet again more seriously.
