Some more California painting before work

Up early again thanks to my crazy cat. My daughter joined me too and we painted together for a bit.

This painting has been a struggle–part of why it was so nice to do the smaller farm painting as a break–and I am rushing some because I want to finish, which is the wrong approach. I think part of the problem has been applying paint too wet and then overworking some wet areas. Maybe this isn’t apparent in the image–and I am sure it will work out nicely in the end–it just hasn’t felt right. Not direct enough I think. Then again, this is always how I feel at the midway point of a painting.

Time to head to work. Thanks for reading.
