Painting new subject matter feels like a taking refresher course on fundamentals. My big thing is always values. I figure if I can get those right most everything else will work out. ...oh, and edges. An early art "lesson" that is still burned in my brain: being told I wasn't ready/entitled to paint sharp edges. (Say what?!) That assessment stayed with me for a long time before I got serious about painting again many years later. I see here, I mighth've sharpened some edges for better effect, but this is a good start. I may try a few more figurative paintings.
