Well...so much for looseness....this is today's effort.....not so happy with the tightness of it...but I learned some things...as always, when I pick up the brush and start laying on paint. I'll work on loosening up again on the next one. May be time for the ten minute exercise again. So helpful for getting more gestural...less literal.....I need to figure out how to dull down the blue in my photographs, too....it always shows up more bright and blue than it is. More learning...always.
