It had to happen sooner or later this month… I had a very blah art day today. I worked on two of my Munich paintings, and both of them look worse now than when I started the day. I didn’t feel like sharing them here today, so I figured I should do something else. Borrowing a method from some other AEDMers, I made some random watercolor marks on a page of my sketchbook, and then stared at it, waiting for inspiration. Nothin’. Grumpy, I almost gave up, but then ended up piecing together a female figure, which I drew in in oil pastel and then emphasized with water color pencils and charcoal. A couple dabs of water, and this is the result:
Nothing too exciting, but a lot more interesting than I thought it would be. So good for me for persevering. If I really want to be an artist, I need to get in the habit of showing up.
Thanks to all those who have left such encouraging comments on my posts this week. Your supportive words mean a lot to me, especially on days like this when I am doubting my abilities. I really appreciate it!
