I’ve been cleaning my art room, which means another look at all of those failed paintings, the ones in half-finished disarray or with flaws that relegate them to the bottom of a portfolio. This usually results in a few groaning winces.
I found a beautiful watercolor that I did in a watercolor class. The beauty was in the color, but anyone who knows me and my propensity for chatter would understand that a class is not the best place for me to do a carefully crafted art project.
And so, I am planning a revival of the painting, complete with cheery color. The background is in Daniel Smith’s pinks & oranges and the foreground a stand of pines. The painting done correctly will be beautiful. Perhaps I should have called this blog “Doing it right the first time”, but I meant mostly to talk about color and was side-tracked.
And so it goes…
