One of the things I've noticed about the journey of painting is that when you start out you see things in bits and pieces. In essence you're (mentally) zoomed in on just one area at a time. This was me too, by the way! As you paint more and more, you start seeing things as connected, zoomed out, whole - and as this happens you can relate each thing to another. This is when you can paint a scene that lives and breathes.
Or maybe it's just the wine talking. It is evening as I post this.
