Trees: I Don’t Like Painting This Way

I’ve started a painting like too many times to count and I’m realizing I don’t like it.

I don’t like doing general washes of color over the painting just to get a quick effect of the colors all over the place. It ends up looking super messy at this stage and then I also have to fix all the drawing mistakes that I make as I go. Plus I’ve basically obliterated my drawing that I spent a long time preparing.

So, next session I’m going to try and bring it back and start by working on small spaces at a time much like the oil painting I working on in tandem.
