I would love to say I just paint from my brain and my paintings come out onto the canvas effortlessly. But, alas, they do not. There is a method to my madness and I have been sticking to it for quite some time now.
Palm trees are some of my favorite subjects to paint, because their leaves lend themselves well to both hard and soft brushstrokes. The palm trees are so forgiving, they beg to be painted slightly haphazardly.
