Another Moment in Painting Adventure
Last Friday night I took another step in my painting adventure. Above you see my third "painting" of the evening...the first two were just binned, nothing salvageable there. For this one, I had no reference. I just tried to do with paint the things that I believe paint can do.
So I mixed wet into wet and did washes to get the background...I just went for values and quick strokes to achieve my petals.
Of course I'm not where I would like to be, but I persevered. I desperately wanted to give up several times...but, as always, sticking with the hard task has its rewards.
