Flower in Jug, 6" x 6", oil on canvas

Today I approached the painting process plein air. I like the results. Usually I will paint from a photo that I have altered in photoshop to get the values I want. I found myself looser and more willing to work in a traditional approach. I have been watching some of the other daily painters videos online and found them educational. I took a walk after painting and was inspired by the landscape around the WO bike trail. I grew up playing around creeks and in the wooded areas of Virginia. I have been planning to paint them for quite a while. Perhaps tomorrow is a good day to start stretching in a new direction. Just keep truckin onnnnnn.
