I had a fun time playing with textures with this little painting. I have to admit, at first I was a bit disappointed to be stuck in the studio this month. I knew it would be a good chance to work on my skills at a more leisurely pace but I still yearned to be outside painting. I still would rather be outside but I am really glad I have had this time in the studio and a chance to work out some ideas and techniques through still life painting. It has also served to remind me how all these skills are connected. I can't wait to take some of the insights I have gained out into the field.
I am cooking up a rather ambitious project for which I am doing a lot of preliminary research at the moment. I will be posting about this project in a couple of weeks!
