Wicker Sofa and Shadows

After completing this little en plein aire, 5″ x 5″ oil painting sketch I threw away the brushes I used to paint it.  Having carelessly used the sable brushes to scumble on other paintings, I had destroyed their edges.  Little hairs constantly fell out and stuck to the painting.  I found it impossible to paint the tiny wicker sofa with a lousy brush.  I was so frustrated that I didn’t bother to correct the value of the shadow under the sofa to make it a bit lighter.
