At first I did not like this painting which is essentially a warm-up, now I am liking it a tad, no more mind you. I have been thinking lately that I’ll be taking November away from blogging. I haven’t been feeling good about my paintings for a while now, very few of them I really like. I have decided to explore my reasons for painting, and get more into a meditative, spiritual approach to my painting process. This might extend into December. I’ll do an extensive post about that next week, so be looking for it.
I decided to move on down the river to Rocky Rest where I have painted before Beach at Rocky Rest . I wanted to pull some good feeling from this outing because I was not enjoying the painting experience which is unusual for me. I brought out the largest Chinese style brush I have to paint with to shake things up, I kind of liked the experience, always fun to throw something different into the mix.
My camera make those splotches very dark, they are not in actuality, keep that in mind.
I didn’t touch these paintings once I got home, I’ll do that later, if needed. I want to take my time to assess them properly.
- Don’t paint when in a nasty mood!
- If in a nasty mood while out there, paint until you can leave with a good feeling, I did just that.
- Art is suppose to be fun!
