I have given myself immunity. I am painting for the next two weeks with freedom and abandon. I want to see how few strokes I can use to identify a form. I also want to use thicker paint mixtures so that color values are correct on the first pass . This requires thought and planning but I am all in.
What I have learned so far;
Simplicity is an illusion. The human eye wants to see everything and report back. The challenge is to try to see like an animal who has no language structures to fall back on . Nothing can be explained . It is only about value and shape a flower or a bird...a form is a form.
I am a watercolor coach, watercolorist, and author.
