Ok, we’re getting there! I’m on the other side of halfway and that feels good. Feels like I’ll make it. Some days it’s hard to commit time to this especially when I’m just covering over everything I paint. Even the ones I like! I am learning a lot though. I’m learning that it takes a lot of crappy paintings to get to one good painting. I knew this but actually doing it is harder than saying it.
Layer 15: I wanted to take my grey sky and make it bright and sunset-y. I added gold paint at the end and it was fun to play around with but I’m not sure I love it here.
Layer 16: Time for something completely different. As long as I’m trying new things, why not go for some flowers?
Layer 17: Flowers are tricky. I wanted a balance the looseness with something that actually looked like flowers and this is where I landed. I kind of enjoy these happy blooms.
Layer 18: This was partially an attempt to use up some leftover paint and partially a need to do something completely abstract after all my landscapes and flowers. It’s much darker in person but I kind of love some of the smeary color combinations that happened here. Hmm…something to work with…
