Count the Strokes

Click Image to see larger version in my gallery
4 x 6 in  -  10 x 20 cm     Acrylic  -  In response to my question in the previous entry Larry Seiler has shown me this great exercise.

Take a small object, an old tube of paint is the classic one and paint it counting the strokes. The point of the exercise as Larry points out, is not to count the stokes. It is instead to make all the strokes count and have purpose.

Not counting the pre painted black background my tube was 162 stokes.

This was something like the view I had.
