More fun with thick paint! I went and saw the Van Gogh and Gauguin show at the De Young about a month ago . I had only seen Van Gogh in print and it was inspiring to see his work in person. I must confess it made me feel that my approach to painting was somewhat careful and cautious. Since then I've been trying to let go a bit more. Let go.... but still try to keep the drawing somewhat accurate. It can be a tough balance.
