Plein Aire!

Nothing makes me feel more inspired than painting outdoors. It's the most tangible form of learning I've encountered so far. And not only that, but in attempting to simplify nature, you come to really appreciate (and learn from) the abilities of the masters. That's me at the top, wearing my lucky painting hat!

DrawerGeek Henchmen!

As soon as I read that this round's Drawergeeks was Henchmen, I knew it was time to have some fun. I've been looking at more sculpture recently, in constant effort to keep learning about planes and light. These are paintings meant to look like clay sculpts. It turned out to be an excellent excersize in light and form.
