Pin It

BREAK THROUGH!


Today painting a handful of lilacs for practice,
I had what I consider a breakthrough in my learning curve.  
I wasn't happy with the overall finished painting compositionally, 
but
I learned so much on how to paint beautiful lilacs in a very loose impressionistic way.
I'll work on it again Monday and when I get something I'm happy with you'll be the first to see.  

It is so wonderful to all of a sudden figure something out and it works!
I think the take away is, like Dori in Finding Nemo:
Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming swimming swimming.
