I guess you get the idea. Working to a goal is always a good idea. I was forced out of my conmort zone and pushed to my limits. I am most happy when I am outside observing on a daily basis. No simulacrum needed thank you.
I paint completely from life or from memory and that I find that spending time on a computer gets in the way of my process of daily observations and emotional connection to the land.
Please email me if you would like to get in touch.
