I decided to rework an old painting I did a few years ago, because I wasn’t happy with the ‘stiffness’ of it, and the panel was damaged in one corner.
On to a new canvas with a looser painting style…
I’m happy with my block in. I did the first painting from life… this one I’m copying from the previous painting.
I really enjoyed the first day. Worked for several hours and enjoyed it immensely. I wasn’t able to finish it that day, so this was as far as I got…
The next afternoon was a disaster.
I felt like I ruined the painting and for several days since then I’ve been going into my studio for maybe a half hour at a time trying to fix it.
Now I’m almost finished, I think, but finishing a painting for me is definitely the hardest part.
I feel like I’m over doing it…under doing it??? Not happy with it yet. 😦
Nevertheless, I’ve got some new projects, new discoveries in mind… I’ll share those next time…:)
Here’s a link to the old painting, if you’re interested… The Goldfish
