Painting Class...

ugh... I wasn't feeling it this week... the paint just wasn't working for me. I was impatient and I used too much white and I let the colors mix and I didn't do a decent drawing of the subject and a whole ton of other things...

the result:

After this I attacked it with a turpentine soaked rag and "erased" as much as is possible with oil paint. So... I was left with a smeared canvas, no work to show for the night (other than the photographs), and an as of yet unrealized artistic vision. 

So I did this: 


Sorta works better, don't ya think?

  2. I like the end result. And sometimes a turbulent journey makes it all the more worthwhile.
