Four small morning studies and a Thomas Cole quote




Here are four of yesterday's small morning studies. It's interesting how the more studies I do the freer I become. The painting develops into its own. It's truer to the feel and less need for description.
I will take these back home and percolate.
I end with a quote from a letter written by Thomas Cole to Asher B Durand.
He explained that her rarely succeeded in painting scenes "immediately on returning from them" because he had to "wait for time to draw a veil over the common details."
