It was cold and windy, but I managed to still find shade and speed paint. I can't say I'm happy with this one, but I'm starting to see where the economy of having a versatile brush helps. For me, I have a medium flat. I've been painting with Robert Simmons brushes, which also happens to be the name of a good friend, no relation I'm told. It's missing contrast. I may try to just stick to monotone tomorrow and see if that helps me focus on getting the right values down on the canvas.
