10 Min Challenge - Day 10

This is a 10 mins per square/rectangle exercise....I really needed this! It helps you loosen up. Here are the details if you want to know more: The Ten Minute Challenge

I am very comfortable painting in oils but I get so frustrated with watercolor, however, its most what I want to use right now because I love the spontaneity of the medium. I know that can be achieved with oils as well. I guess its kind of challenging me to get out of my comfort zone. 
I'm inspired by this incredible painter John Yardley. I'm especially interested in his plein air work.
