Charles Hawthorne (1872 - 1930) says use a blunt knife to paint then paint something that is NOT PRETTY. So I chose this good-looking John Deere
tractor, not my usual flowers.
He says avoid drawing, just put a spot of colour in the right place then another CORRECT value and colour next to it. I did everything he told me:
I missed my brush and I missed my drawing and I used an awful lot of acrylic paint but had FUN - just like he said I would....it was a useful study and I learnt a lot by reading "Hawthorne on Painting.".
What do you think? (See COMMENTS below).
