Well, I finally got a new tube of yellow oil paint and got back out with my canvases. I think it did me good to have a break from it for awhile, though. I felt like I was a little fresher in approaching this painting – a little less stressed out over what to do, what not to do, what to adjust from last time. I think for that reason I captured the essence of this particular scene a little better. Having some time to do some low-stress sketching before coming back to oil was a nice breath of fresh air.
Anyway, next week I’ll be at the beach, hopefully breaking out both watercolor and oil to catch some new scenery. Can’t wait!
