another black and white

One compositional faux pas artists make is not having a real focal point (or not sticking to it). Whether en plein air or using photographic reference, the draw of more continues to mean less. When the viewer looks at your work it should be clear what interested you when you decided to paint.
If you get drawn into another delicious spot while working, tell yourself that you need to save it for the next painting. Two divas fighting will never work.

This is my second attempt at leaving a comment. Forgive the repetition if the first one actually made it through.
Just wanted to say that I'm really enjoying your black and white series. For me they only demonstrate your artistic genius even more. Love the comment about the divas too.
Check out my website if you have a minute. I've been working on it again, though I still haven't been able to fix the comments. GRRRrrrr!
