Day 18's effort
Today I decided to re-visit the painting I did on day 18 in the hope of trying to loosen up further. I thought I might make more headway if I tried the same subject in quick succession. In the end it took me around the same time to paint both pictures - approx 1 hour and 20 minutes. I think today's photo is less sharp than the one I took of the previous painting, but hopefully they are both clear enough to make comparisons. I think some aspects of today's paintings are better and some aren't. I'm not sure which one I prefer at this stage but I'm leaning towards day 18's effort. Does loosening up come about over time due to sheer volume of output or does it really need to be focused upon - or both? I'd appreciate knowing which painting people prefer and why. Also any advice on how to move forward would be appreciated.
