This painting is about a lot of direction marks and a focusing the painting with a complementary color. I think if you use, as I have been saying through the last project and this one, a really expressive brush you can make even the most mundane of subject matter come alive. Now is the time to make getting right with a round brush part of your daily routine. I know you all are on board with this and are working a little bit each day. I would recommend that you forsake painting pictures and make sure your skills are up to par. The painting should be a culmination of all the effort put into the process. I promise that your paintings will be better when you paint intuitively and with purpose and direction.
