Well! Finally! Something I think of as 'painterly' and 'loose' .... So how did this happen and how can I do it again? Sigh! I have to say that it's nothing more than what I've been reading and attempting for a while --
* Use a bit more water -- most of the time, especially in my sketchbook, my paint is too dry -- * However, be sure that the correct values for the washes are reached prior to putting brush to paper! * Lighten my pencil lines * Brush on paint with confidence * LEAVE IT ALONE!! * Wait until it dries
* QUIT fiddling WITH IT.
* And probably The #1 thing -- PLAN BEFORE PAINTING!
