This week’s Illustration Friday word, Feet gave me the idea for another part of a picture book story I am working on titled "Musk".

It’s not only a picture book that I’m working on, but also a stretch for my style of painting. I’m trying to see how lose I can get. I’m not spending much time on the sketches and I’ve lost the brush entirely, using my fingers to paint.

To be honest, it’s hard to push myself to work this loosely. I have to trust that the picture will come together at the end when my natural instinct wants to know it’s going well right from the sketch. As you can see, this isn’t very impressive.

Here's a link to a complete painting done in this style.
