Today I did sort of a Plein Air painting belly flop. I went out into the foothills and set up shop. You don’t win them all on the first go. This is a small part of the painting I did. I’m going to spend some more time on the whole composition and see where I can take it. Today I got caught up in trying to paint like someone else and wound up frustrated. I need to remember to just paint the way I paint. I can’t seem to get away from myself.
