I have told my students to paint every day and I obviously don't listen to my own advice. After having a disappointing try at a small painting I went back the next day and tried again. I painted this little painting and I was much more comfortable. It proves my point - you have to paint every day, if possible.

I finally got into my studio after an absence of several weeks and discovered I forgot how to paint! I was all thumbs - couldn't draw, couldn't work the paint, couldn't feel comfortable. I finally did this little painting and felt relieved but I don't like it. The kid's arm looks odd.
So, I will prop it up in the kitchen and ignore it for a couple of days and the problem will reveal itself to me.
