Some Loose Painting

Here are a couple of oil paintings that I have done in the last few days. There are two things I want to learn: how to paint loosely and how to paint landscapes.

This reminds me of spinning on my spinning wheel. When I first learned to spin, I made loose, slubby yarn that didn’t hold together well. As I got better at it, the yarn tightened up and became good yarn that knitted up very nicely. Now, if I want to make loose yarn, I can’t do it. I am just a tight spinster and can’t loosen up. It is like that with my drawing and painting. I can’t seem to loosen up. I love to see the work of a painter that can paint loose. I will keep trying… LOL!

Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? No. Just as one can never learn how to paint. — Pablo Picasso
