Here is another alla prima oil that I painted during one of the sessions in Stowe. It is fun to complete (or at least try to get as far as I can) a painting in one sitting. I am convinced that in order to keep learning, I need to do quick studies like this and then slow, carefully conceived and constructed paintings. As long as an artist can stay on a learning curve, she/he will continue to improve. Painting can be frustrating at times. There are always times when you seem to hit a plateau....and then.....Bingo! You have a break through. Advice to self: Keep painting!
