Avocados and Movement

I’ve been wanting to work on being loser/more liberal with my brush strokes and color usage and less focused on details/realism. One morning I instagramed my avocados. Turns out, the light and simplicity of the photo served as a good source of inspiration for trying out this different style.  I was determined to be more free and have obvious brush strokes, really working at not blending the colors too much. I wanted to really focus on the movement of each stroke and colors rather than what avocados look like realistically.

Crested Butte

I went to Crested Butte for my birthday weekend this year and fell in love. The views there are amazing and I had the best time. Two solid ingredients for inspiration.
