More Studies. Well, just got back from vacation and was able to get a lot of painting time and drawing time in. One of the things that I recently learned was that I needed to start studying other works from other artists that I like. One of my favorite artists is Paul Bachem. I love the way that he does the greens in his paintings and the variety of strokes that he uses. I also like the simplicity of the painting. For me, the painting have a definite feel of peacefulness.

So, started doing some more 4 x 5 studies of the painting. In each case, I didn't do an exact replica of the painting, but tried to create more of the peaceful mood of the work. Also, I zoomed in (using my iPad) to see how he changes the strokes in various directions.
