This is a watercolor study I painted in 10 minutes today. I often like to do quick studies which help me warm up for the day of painting. That's right, loosens up my ’painter’s arm’, my memory, and gets my brain in focus.
The primary purpose I wanted to accomplish with this study was focusing on lines and shapes — building on the abstract shape. To achieve this, I paint without a photo reference, instead, I lean on my memory. Quite often I sit quietly in nature and study color, shapes, and values. I call it ’plein air observation.’ Studying the beauty and subtleties of nature helps you develop your memory skills which allow you to distill the information you have observed into a one of a kind expression. This way you are not using your photo as a crutch but allows you to truly create and not copy. I believe this exercise keeps my paintings from becoming static and stale but one of a kind.
