The second trial of my new super cheap pochade box. I figured out that I really hate the texture of canvas especially on these small canvases. So, I’m going to gesso up some panels for more landscapes today.

Also, bugs really suck! Geez I could barely focus with all the bugs on me. Plus the light changes super fast. Landscape painting is an unruly beast that I have forgotten how to tame.

My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it.
