You win some, you lose some
Aw hell! It just wasn’t a good day to push myself.
I went for a walk to run some errands and walked past some lovely street art.
Both city consigned and not so city consigned, but both equally lovely.
It put me in the mood to do some painting this afternoon, and so I grabbed a canvas and toned it with acrylics (left)…and hated it. So here’s where I should have stopped and sanded the whole thing off, but, deciding I could save it, I grabbed my oils and toned it again (right)…and still hated it, because now the acrylic tone was ghosting thru the wet oil. (sigh)
Next mistake: I picked some bluebells to paint…
…and then looked around and saw my roses.
Roses won for the time being, so I squished out some paint and picked up a few paintbrushes and painted in a couple roses…
…and hated it!
So I wiped all the paint of the canvas, put it aside and went to water the garden.
Some days are like that. 🙁
