Jan and I went painting at 7:15 tonight. I've wanted to paint this cottonwood tree for weeks but knew I wouldn't have enough time to do a b&w study and start a color painting before the sun set so I opted to do a b&w study. It's not great but I know what I need to do next time. I'll say it again ... I love doing these studies. In the past I've wasted so much time jumping into color before I really understood what the heck I was painting. I'm sure if I keep this up for the next several months my paintings will drastically improve.
