Here is two good examples your wouldn't think about unless you looked at the two side by side.
Both are good painting styles. They are of a shoreline. ONe uses the palette knife, the other paints it pretty much as he sees it in the reference photo.
I think this also tells you, that you can get all the info you need by looking at things well. The and tricks painting.
The one of the about infusion, how small branches become lower values because of the theory that light infuses them and makes them ligher in value....and yet..........what a great painting! Just shows that even brilliant! geniuses! not even have to follow rules. You can do it anyway and still become great at it. I know, i hear this, but i am keeping these images in my "breaking rules" notepad for encouragment.

The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.
