Did I say I’ve had a cold all week? No? Well, another cold. So I didn’t get much painting done. Long experience has demonstrated that when I feel sick my paintings just don’t come together right, my color choices are terrible, the colors don’t blend right (everything turns brown, or worse–green!), and altogether it’s a waste of time to even try. I must not have been feeling quite that down this time, because I did 3 or 4 paintings that turned out terrific. Yesterday I painted this bunny study.
Didn’t those colors turn out wonderful? This is what I’ve always imagined painting like, but it took so long to figure out how to do it. Trial and error.
