Practiced mark-making techniques to slowly get controlled/free effects with the sumi brush. Experimenting with composition. Painted 30 studies. Selected 13 to share. Wish I could do 100 per day.

12 Little Pine Bonsai and 1 Autumn Birch

This is one in a series of many weekly painting adventures in which Mary Froderberg and I meet interesting people who wonder what the heck we're doing on their property. This series was painted at a bonsai farm in Bow Washington, with gracious permission from the farmer.

I had a good run at this one, but I think I'd like to do it again with more thoughtful marks and tones (as suggested by Paul Foxton's lessons). I purchased a second canvas today. We'll see what happens.

I made an unholy mess with my painting yesterday. Some good areas, some not. I swear they were painted by 2 different people: one who is better than me and full of relaxed experienced confidence. The other, a student, painting blind and left handed. Oh dear. They're both me.

Round 2 today. Pray I'm visited by the first guest painter, not the second.

Below is a small section of a 72" painting.

Painting today. The frequent practice has brought me to a new place with my brush strokes. A new style, more Me than before. Feels wonderful. The painting will take some time to complete. I'll post when it's finished. Cheers to the DAPper gang.

I did a tonal study in charcoal, a marble bust of venus. Did I take a picture? Of course not. I totally forgot. Oops. Sorry DAPper gang. I'll remember next time.
