Learning to loosen up

10"x8" - Oil on gessoed matboard

I've actually accomplished what I set out to do in this still life composition.  My goal was to simplify shapes as much as possible and keep strokes of color at a minimum. be as Impressionistic as possible. 

I bought new bristle brushes today  that are very light in the hand. I love the way they handle....they're called..."Pro Stroke 77B Premium White Bristle Creative Mark."  I found the at the Oskaloosa  Art Center.  The center is 56 miles away from where I live.....i'm  making another trip soon to pick up more brushes.

  1. Gorgeous. It's a lovely palette, the bit of blue against mostly yellow-ish tones.
