Keeping it Fresh
I'm beginning to see how important it is to keep my eyes fresh as I work. I usually work on a painting at a time, I can't deal with multiple pieces at once, it confuses me. But I see how important it is to work on something different or stay away from a work for a while. Looking at things with fresh eyes helps me see where the painting is going and what lacks. I'm staying away from the landscape for a couple of days and in the meantime I started working on this still life. There's also a third piece I'm working on, but I will talk about that on another time.
