Splash it abaht

Want to be more, I think the word is 'painterly', in my work.

Was in the National Portrait Gallery introducing a friend to the delights of John Singer Sargent, and how his work is as much about the paint as the person. And in the BP Portrait competition exhibition there is a piece by Simon Wright I liked which was as much paint as portrait. ( And somehow not as good online as it is in front of you )

Was pleased with this piece from the week before last.

Still way off what I want to be able to do, but in the right direction. 

I get too enslaved to wanting to do "a good drawing". I need to loosen up more. not in my paint or my hand, but in my ego.
