painting: paint horse (05/01/18)

I know I say it all the time, but sometimes these just work. I use the same colors, pretty much, but from one painting to the next some just don’t work at all. I do think a lot of it has to do with my mood, and how rushed I feel. Large paintings are more overwhelming, because what if it’s not a successful attempt? I’m out paint, canvas, and time. Sometimes it’s hard to jump in when you know you might fail; I know that’s what stops a lot of people from attempting. But still, it takes the failures to help you understand what success is, doesn’t it?

  1. I had a friend over today and we decided to paint watercolors together.
    Your comment about not wanting to fail is so true. You really do just need to jump in and give it a go. We shared comments and laughed and had a great time. And I came away with more confidence and a nice watercolor to boot.
