|Work in Progress|
I haven't decided on a title. Not sure why, but 'Kiss Me Kate' came to mind when I started. If you have any ideas for a title please let me know.
It is funny that when I started the 30 in 30 challenge the paintings seem to go a little easier. I think I've started trying too hard and that's not good. Finishing a painting in a day is an interesting process. I wish I could figure out how many artist friends say they start painting and can paint all day or into the night. For me that's similar to running friends who talk about a runner's high. Still waiting for that to happen.
I see artists who produce wonderful paintings, wet into wet and somehow don't get pink when they lay their lights up against red. Magic. Me, I find this process tricky because the colors easily turn muddy if I fiddle with them too much.
For this painting I knew I needed to stop, so I used a scrapper to draw my shapes back in (those white lines you see) and decided to call it a day. I'll go back tomorrow and see how it goes. It'll be interesting to see if I can save it. But if I can't, well the challenge is about learning from our mistakes too!
