continuing landscape series 5, 38x36" slowly-slowly........ / by Philip Tarlow

2 PM: this is the end of my day in the studio. early today so i can go to the post office & we can walk up to the stupa before our dinner guest arrives. as i said, i'm going very slowly. as of yet there is now explosive moment of flying chi, but it will come. maybe tomorrow.






11:56 AM: this morning i've been continuing work on landscape series 5, taking it very slow while listening to my gut, or my guidance, or whatever you choose to call it. at a ceretain point, it said, "use a little oil paint to define the rocks, like you did in some of your recent plein air gouaches." at another point, it suggested i use some oil pastel instead of colored pencils.
