I'll continue to use oils during the Monday night
figure sessions to practice laying down the right
stroke of paint having the right value,color,size
and edge quality.
I'm more confident painting during a short session
rather than a longer pose, say three hours. I think
that the longer the pose the more mistakes that can be
made; while on a shorter pose a few calculated correct
strokes can finish the painting.

Well here is a landscape I painted
of a watering hole at McKinney falls.
I switched the painting to black and white.
I'm not too happy with the way I paint and I'm
trying to get away form all the blocky blobs
of color. Anyways, I see so many things that
are wrong and I know I'll have to be conscious
of them on my next paintings.
