A new beginning

Getting started on a new, fun landscape. All I can really say so far is it's going to take awhile! I spend a lot of time staring at it trying to figure out how to paint distinct, understandable patches of colors instead of blending it all gradually and nicely and comfortably. Trying to let the details of reality go, and paint in this shape-driven style that I've been yearning to develop more. My favorite paintings of the last year were done this way, like my Lazy Afternoon in the Gorge. I get really, really excited about it. I just don't exactly know how to do it. Haha! The only answer is to keep plugging away though. And to spend less time staring and more time painting!
