Helen, Does your page say "no drawing"? Did you just start right in with the painted image? The pages are both wonderful! I love looking at your blog, thank you for sharing your art!

Thank you Carol!

Johanne,
I paint right on without drawing many times, of course it can lead to complications but most of the time it gives nice surprises and it obliges one to be reactive to what is put down on the paper. Of course the questions about values, color mixes on the paper or the palette etc better be almost automatic. It will make it all easier when you can paint without thinking about those issues rather than only rendering, composition structure, rhythm etc.
Thank you!
