Study in White
I decided that I needed to get down to basics again. It seems that I have a tendency to rush a painting rather than taking plenty of time to do a very good drawing before beginning. Then to proceed with thought and care. In this painting I worked out a nice drawing before I laid brush to canvas. It was quite difficult for me but I learned a great deal. There are some major problems with the painting but I was afraid of losing it. I will try again and correct what I felt I did wrong. I took photos of the drawing and then erased them from my camera. Next time I will show the entire process.

I have a tendency to overwork a painting and this was an attempt to limit brushstrokes and to work quickly and deliberately...... ...
This is in response to a request......
