Was up early this morning. Went to my little art room.
And painted on this until both the painting and I cried.
After painting for 7 year's now, I think I should be learning, growing, reaching out and getting better. Unfortunately, I keep making the same mistakes. This is overworked and ugly. Why? because I kept going in with not enough pigment on my brush, trying to paint wet-in-wet with pale colors that never became anything but muddy. Too timid and cheap with the colors. Nothing bold and sure about it at all. And there is no modeling to the things - they all look flat and ugly. But other than that, hey, it's pretty good!
I'd like to think I learned something from this horror, but with my thick head I know I'll make the same mistake again.
