Trying to Loosen Up...

I've been working on a new painting for a few days now, with the goal of using looser strokes to capture the important information of the subject while keeping the final result "painterly". I actually find that working in this way forces me to step back and squint a bit more, which is helpful to me because I can sometimes get stuck in the weeds and lose sight of the big picture.

I think I am going to take a little break before making the finishing touches. Overall a good learning experience!
