Feeling rusty and anxious about "re-entering" today,
I challenged myself to do a
"No Map Exercise".
The idea is to paint just the big shapes in the right value
without any pre- mark making, measuring, or drawing!
I know a lot of awesome painters who do this very successfully
but to me, it's like driving without my glasses.
(I'm such a girl scout. I need a map!)
You can see where I cheated on the orange pitcher,
and got off track with the yellow cup.
(Those red marks are from a previous start)
It's great to be back in the saddle !
