As the weather, and the studio, warmed up I started working on larger scale sketches and color studies. So far I have developed two or three of the little thumbnails, but that work has energized them.
At first I intended to develop all the ideas and review them as a body, but I decided to try starting on one which I continue to develop the others. Right now I have four paintings underway in the studio - two are near completion but were started some months ago. Surprisingly these paintings have been boosted by the new work that is starting.
I really think that working on a group or series of paintings en masse like this is going to help me be more productive and have less slumps between paintings.
