I did the DPW challenge this week with an open mind. One of the obstacles I constantly need to overcome is my stingy nature. I need to free myself and not think about how much paint I am using. The weeks challenge hit that nail right on the head. Use lots of paint, a number 8 brush, limit the times you lift the brush off the canvas...very difficult for a miser like myself. I did it, and by far, this was the most enjoyable painting I have done. Like this abstract quality that loading up the brush and limiting the strokes accomplishes.
