Painting from life, keeps you in the moment. It forces you to make decisions quickly with a limited amount of time. This keeps the painting fresh. I don't use any black in my paintings, I play with color, and look for patterns of light. I try to keep the brushstrokes at a minimum , making choices of brushstrokes that are most descriptive while still capturing them model's mood, and gesture.
