I am trying something new. My brushwork was getting too tight so I am trying to use bigger brushes and go for more abstract shapes. Putting a brushstroke down once and resisting overblending is my goal.
I have been in a slump lately, having a hard time coming up with new subject matter. Studying other blogs and my art magazines has been inspiring. Doing a painting a day to warm up without the pressure of a finished painting helps me, too.
