I had thought I would paint this landscape without drawing first. I expected it would be quick and easy, as the shapes in the Gorge are fairly repetitive and simple. But - it didn't work. I was bored, tried to convince myself the work was OK, and then finally, in desperation, I was driven to really look and find the relationships between shapes. How inefficient, to have all these steps! However, how much more inefficient it was to skip them! So. Now, I'm back in the game. Today I'll spend time with the relationships of colors in a different study. I was looking for shortcuts, but none to be had. Instead, I'm making progress.
