So today I did a whole bunch of work on that drawing I had made yesterday. And I’m noticing that I still have a lot of problems to get over when it comes to painting.. I’m not loose enough with my strokes and I struggle to make the colour vibrant and lively – this despite knowing quite a bit about colour theory. I think I’m just a little too gun-shy on playing around with it.
Perhaps I’m just trying to make it too perfect too early, and as such I handicap my own efforts the further in I get. But these are all good things to know, so I’m still glad I spent so long working on this today.
Employing too many techniques that simply don’t work still. Maybe I’ll work them out in time.
