Grey Juno 13, 6 x 6 inches, Oil on Panel
This is the painting I tried to finish last Friday. I have learned that if after a few tries, what you are trying to paint doesn't work, scrape and wait, Usually my artist brain resets overnight. I go to the easel the next day, and woo-hoo I can paint again!
I still fall sucker to the tricky artist brain: "Oh just another dab here and it will look better" Me talking to myself: Well... NO it doesn't look better, in fact it looks WORSE! Tricky artist brain: Oh stop being a baby, suck it up and try again. Me: I JUST RUINED IT! All that work and now I have to scrape the whole thing off! The good news is this doesn't happen as much as it use to.
