Stacked Cups + Apple 3

I keep coming back to the same objects and compositions 
because there are infinite ways to paint them. I marvel that 
the same medium and tools in different hands yield entirely
different results. With each piece, I try to be aware and 
conscious that I need to begin differently, be aware of each 
stroke and be attentive to how that stroke relates to others, 
whether in color, value or texture, but I always backslide,  
forget and revert back to old habits. Then the struggle begins. 
As an 8 x 6, this panel seemed huge!

You have wonderfully bold confident brushwork. That is something I strive for, but your paintings make it look natural.

Thanks, Tempy. I check for comments, practically live for them at the moment :-) but I didn't see the line that said I had comments waiting. Learning curve . . .
