All paintings are lessons for the next. It's an ongoing learning process, increasing skills for future works.
I am currently working on learning a new skill. Well... actually two. I am first learning the art of pastel sketching, and the second is to create spacial depth in my work. It is quite complex and one that I am going to have to hit many resources to perfect. I know I can create form, but to put those forms in space isn't easy. I have learned ways to create it in my plein air work, but it is new to me when you are talking about stretching inches into miles. Such as in a still life. Making the correct color choices, to achieve this goal is where I am headed.
I will be doing some research on this and will get back to you with what I have found.
Here are a few that will keep you busy for a while:
