As I get older I'm realizing the value of things I used to take for granted, like knowing exactly the right word. I just finished three 6x8 inch value studies of rock carnes, They captured that special feeling of satisfaction which is such a pleasure when a painting completely absorbs me.
I had been studying abstract work for the last couple years, trying to apply my knowledge of watercolor and the elements and principles of design. In a sense all art is abstract and there is no set formula for what works. Kindness, the beauty of nature and simple things can express so much.
If the values are right , everything else will be okay.
