The look I had pictured in my head works much better for figurative work than landscapes. Or maybe it's just that I'm SO bored with painting landscapes.
On this piece I was focusing mainly on brushstrokes, trying to keep them loose and consistent. I feel like the more I work on a painting (or the more I like it) I tighten up my brushstrokes, and the painting loses all of it's energy. I guess that could also be why I usually like my paintings halfway through, and then hate them at the end. I do not hate this one, I finally feel like I touched on...
I think that watching paintings evolve is entertaining so I've decided to keep track of this new work. I think it's finished now, but I could always change my mind in a few days.
It took me so long to find the mission, I don't know why since it turns out that it's pretty easy.
