I don’t know how I wound up with this image.
I bought some of the large 2ft x 3ft Archer’s Water Color Paper at the South County Art Supply 50% off sale. So of course I felt obliged to use it right away!
I am ever so slowly figuring out why I am constantly unhappy with these “more abstract” style paintings. I just wet the paper and start playing but I never know what I am going to make. It just isn’t working for me. I did this yesterday too. The major problem, is the painting winds up with no strong composition. The definition of insanity is: doing something over and over again, yet expecting a different result. I hope today is the last day I do this. In my mad dash to finish something quickly, I am not organizing my thoughts and creating a plan of action. Tomorrows painting will have a light sketch, so I at least have a little forethought. I’ll keep at it though…
In my head, I chose a color palette of red, orange, pink and green. Some how blue, yellow and brown crept in, and no pink! It is alright though, I really like the unplanned color scheme. I need to reign myself in a bit, otherwise every painting will look the same!
I’m sure you’ve heard enough complaining. I will walk away and try again tomorrow. If you do something a hundred times you’re bound to improve right?
I will try, try, again! & Again.. & Again.. & Again…
