18x18 Oil on Stretched Canvas
I did this painting using the same color palette as the previous posting. I still find myself looking at details when I'm doing a painting. I want to be able to look at the whole and not the details and colors of the objects in the paintings.Using a limited palette helps me focus on values and edges. I think it takes a lot of "self training" and "looking" to see what is happening in the whole picture. There are times when I am tempted to go back to painting more illustrative and realistic but I have set a goal for myself, and I need to try to reach it.
