The thing about posting, it gives enough distance to be able to see one's own work with a stranger's eye. I find this quite helpful in judging strengths and weaknesses, and also in noticing proclivities. For instance, I have noticed that I seem to choose scenes where shadows fall across pathways; what I don't know is exactly why I do this. I am getting rather bored with this choice, now that I recognize this, and so next time I go out I will look for something different. The other thing that grabs me is how very much I like the first, simplified BW, I like it much better than any of the others. So the new challenge will be to try to carry what I like in that throughout the remainder of the exercise. (I set up so many panels for this quad-exercise, and am committed to completing that many (4-6 left?) of these exercises before I graduate to "just painting."
