With a little of the already mixed color on the palette from yesterday, I did a quick, small sketch of what I had intended to do yesterday. The smaller size let me easily accomplish a looser more abstract of the shapes and colors. Something about the amount of paint and brush size just seem easier for me.
I watched Wyland last night, and he was using an entire tube of ultramarine blue for an ocean scene he was working on, and a 5 inch brush that looked like a house painting brush. I think that's what I'll have to try. Gulp.
