I'm sure every artist is constantly trying to improve their style, and my attempt is always to "loosen up" my strokes, to have a more impressionistic, softer feel to the subject. When your natural instinct is to be detailed and linear, you keep that inner voice saying, "simplify, less is more, use those lost and found lines and minimal number of strokes". I think this background is getting "there"!
