I felt beaten by the roses in yesterday’s painting. I don’t feel particularly victorious with today’s do-over, but I do feel at least I won back a few points.
No more attempts at mood lighting, this was just the vase of flowers on my desk.
Trying to find my way…
At least I’m not hankering after the under-painting this time!
Lesson learnt: If you can’t identify that certain something in a subject that appeals to you or motivates you to paint it, chances are you’re not going to like the finished painting (or enjoy the process!).
