12:14 PM: upon entering the studio this morning, i cast my quick-take glance at the painting. nothing jumped out at me that was disturbing the balance of the whole. on the contrary, i began noticing and appreciating the subtle balance of gestural/painterly marks and the delicate and more precise under-drawing in colored pencil and crayon.
yesterday i discovered a few boxes full of 16x16" plein air oils painted mostly in the spring & fall of 2014. i made a selection of the ones that seemed most promising as candidates for my landscape series, and will be launching into the next one today or tomorrow. here you see one of those i selected.
