I’m posting a little later than usual today because it was so nice outside.  I had a great walk and sat down to do a little painting outdoors.  I’ve been trying to maintain loose lines in my work and doing lots of gesture drawings. It can seem a little unnatural to trust my instincts at first, but feels great once I get comfortable.  In the end, I decided to exaggerate the shadows and create contrast with the sky and foreground. Thank you for the nice comments I’ve been getting lately.  Your encouragement and insights are greatly appreciated.
