I'm finding standing to paint so much easier and even quicker.Also the larger paintbrushes allow for a more freestyle of painting.
I'm keeping up with the Charles Sovek lessons,about one a day,only I won't be posting them as it is a bit time consuming.

I have decided to send my spice jar(which I posted on the 8th of July) to any of my followers who want it.In return I would ask that they paint it and post it on their blog and then offer it to one of their followers.At some point it would be nice to have the jar back so(I'm making this up as I go along so bear with me)say after a year from when I send it.Jean Nelson did say she wanted it ,so I will offer it to her first.I'll keep you posted. : )
Thanks again Maria.

Todays painting I did with quite a few changes,I used a bigger brush,I stood up and painted ,held the brush at the tip instead of like a pen.I'm not sure if all these changes have had a positive effect just yet,with any thing its .....practice,practice,practice.Another thing i resolve to do is follow Charles Soveks lessons ,which Maria Baluis very kindly suggested.
I've posted both the photo I used and my painting so that you can decide whether I have actually succeeded in simplifying this scene.

I'm trying to keep details to a minimum and concentrate more on shapes and values.I would love some feedback....constructive critisicm would be good otherwise I feel its an uphill battle.This scene I felt would be a good exercise in painting all those different shapes.

"Very whitely still The liliesof our lives may reassure Their blossoms from their roots,accessible Alone to heavenly dews that drop no fewer;Growing straight out of mans reach,on the hill.God only,who made us rich,can make us poor."
Elizabeth Barrett Browning quote
