You would think it would get easier but it doesn't seem to. Probably the more experience you have the higher your own expectations. I have a show coming up in our community centre. I have a vision of 28 small dog paintings split by 4 large ones. I made a good start on two of the big ones. Yesterday I was started working on the third. Actually yesterday I worked on one version wiped it completely off. I just learned you can wipe it down with alcohol and it made a very nice toned surface to start again today. Can you see the differences between the 3 paintings? The answer is about an 2 hours. Hard to believe eh? (that's the Canadian in me).
I am done for the day and whipped up small one. Who doesn't love a puppy - maybe just Mr. Grinch. To all you Americans have a wonderful Thanksgiving and happy shopping
Sometimes painting is very addictive. I said to myself put the brush down go to bed and start again tomorrow. It never works when you paint while being tired. Just one stroke I said. An hour later and I can barely tell the difference.
Maybe I should listen to myself.
