  • Fundamentals
      1. Lighting, shadows, values,
      2. Easier to be inspired/Less Pressure – painted what I felt like
      3. Grew more in my style, brain break/brainstorm for original paint ideas (that are usually hard for me to plan)

        1. It pushed me to
        2. How fun it is to have a finished product quicker
        3. More open to other mediums
