back in the saddle…

Yeeha…I’m back and painting again. Still a case of paint…cough…paint…cough (not helped by the 5˚C garage studio). Exciting times…trying a new technique at the moment. All my “techniques” are self-taught, so the results are a bit hit-and-miss. I do like it when I can visualise something and it actually turns out as pictured. Canvas #2 (“Against the Odds”) did not turn out as visualised, and – as much as I have reviewed the process – I can’t figure out how I could paint it differently to achieve the image in my head. Frustrating! How wonderful it would be to be a student in an art class where there is a mentor to guide the process. On the other hand…how liberating it is to be free of procedural constraint and paint as I please!
