I’m currently busy with this painting and it is taking me ages. I’m getting quite pedantic about the mark I make. I’m afraid it’s beginning to look like a knitted jersey. Too much tension in the mark. Even if I enjoy mixing the colours. The different tonal values is a challenge that I insist on ‘getting it right’ – my motto … I’m beginning to wish it was finished. It’s too far down the line to abandon. And, lucky me, there’s a commission waiting to be done. Feel free to criticize.
I’ve been reading other blogs with regard to painting, or art making in general. Quite frankly, it’s the only time I vaguely feel like a human being. The only time I feel I am really working.
