Super fun to paint. Felt good to shed my overt landscapiness. Landscapes, while nice as a warm-up, always feel a bit cheap coming from my hand. It’s as though I’m not working hard enough. Abstracting is surprisingly challenging. The mechanics of observation can be trained. External rendering of internal observation is quite different, however.
