I spent much of the day at the studio in Hamilton today and planned several paintings that should have been easy, but somehow, it was all hard today.
First, I painted a part of my lunch... the peach...
... then one of the neighbours,
... and then I tried a painting of some sheep yards along Taylor's Run Road. I am still trying to use the same kind of brush strokes as Cezanne, and they can look so simple... and yet it is all very calculated.
Some days, it all seems very easy, and some days it is hard work. I still think that the trick is just to perervere.
