Major Mess Up

At this point in my artist journey, I really thought that I had come through the painter’s block. I picked a bouquet of lilies from my flower garden and set to work on a new painting.

I really like how this turned out at first, but this is just a small corner of this painting…

Here’s the whole thing when I first started, before I reworked it, added a vase, took away the vase, added a vase again…

Before I decided I would change the background and make it darker…

Before the live flowers began to fade and fall off…

And here it is still sitting cast aside…maybe someday to be resurrected… maybe not… 😦

I really messed up, and I still don’t know how to change this.

One thing I learned here is that I have no step by step process for painting. I just kind of wing it.

That is what I now set out to discover…

But I have to say that I was extremely discouraged at this point. I really thought that perhaps it was time to quit painting. My painter’s block had come to it’s most critical point.

So sad…
