Still trying to be painterly... ie. not too much Blending of colours.

Here's my reasoning from an artist called Kreutz:

In less grandiose terms, blending is also a problem because it’s not clear where to stop. Once you start feathering a little passage here and there, you want to do it everywhere and the picture gets softer and softer. Reworking areas becomes difficult because the perimeters are so vague that you can’t tell where one passage ends and another begins. Gradually the picture starts sliding into mud.

I'm really enjoying these quick paintings since I'm so Impatient. Learning heaps!
