It is painted freely, which is good, because it is all about awakening the painterly feeling. However, I have noted a tendency, among many amateurs, that the difference in values is not sufficiently accentuated. Better contrasts do much to emphasize form. Perhaps it's a good idea to make only monochrome paintings for a while, so that one gets a better feeling for values. Picasso started out doing only blue paintings. Then he had a period during which he only painted in pinks. Professional painters often squint. It makes it easier to perceive values.
