His portrait went fast, I must have been in the mood to paint. If all the forces align I can whip out a painting pretty darn fast. If anything is off, and I mean anything, then I know it will be a struggle ;)
I seem to becoming more confident with my brush strokes, I seem to know what will happen with the pigment more than I did on # 1. By not trying to control the paint so much some nice things are happening. I say this, but last night I did a bad thing...I looked at other artists portraits. Gawd! Don't do that while you're in the middle of a challenge like mine. It fills your prior thought of "nice things are happening" to you stink, put the brush down and give up lady, cause you don't know a thing! Extreme thoughts, I know, but the insecurities and temperament of artists...well let's just say we are a critical bunch when it comes to our own work. That I do know ;)
Not letting my negative thoughts take over, today I proceeded onto number 16.
I may attempt number 17 today? I can't believe over half the day has disappeared! I still haven't had breakfast and it's way past lunch time. I'm hungry, this I know! Latah all and thanks for reading :)
