    Thanks for visiting.

  2. I think this turned out wonderfully. Love it. Weren’t you happy with it? Sarah

  3. I hate it! It looks grubby and laboured, the background was a mistake and the colours aren’t right. But, there is always some small thing positive in every picture and I can live with the green and clear bottle in the middle, just!

    • Listen, I know how this feels. You had another idea in your head- of glowingly transparent bottles maybe, radiating heavenly light. And instead you get ,for your feeling, ‘grubby and laboured’.

      What I see is a dynamic and interesting painting. Put it away for several months and when you can see more clearly look at it again.

      Yesterday I made an ugly, uninspired, banal attempt at a sequel to my tulip painting. I got a second opinion from my hub who loves most of my good work, and he agreed! So , contrary to the advice I’ve written here, I trashed it. But it was REALLY bad. Just to let you know that in between the ones that sing, there are missers for every artist.

      And this painting definitely isn’t, I repeat, isn’t, a misser.

      • Ahh, thank you for the encouragement and empathy Sarah, much appreciated. Dealing with disappointment can be tough. I don’t get much time to draw so it seems important to feel ok about what comes out the other end. Anyway, its all part of the journey…

        • I can imagine how it must feel to have pressure to ‘produce’ when there is a limit on the time you have to devote to drawing.

          You are right, it is all part of the journey. Every step brings you to the next one, I find. Every single mark on paper, worthy or not in our own eyes moves us closer to something that will make our heart sing. And some paintings. like my trashed one, are only there to get that one out of the way so the same mistakes won’t be made on the next one.

          Keeping this in mind helps me keep sitting down in front of the next blank canvas, and lets me be easier on myself when I ruin it. (the last part of this sentence is a lie 🙂 ) .

  4. Try repainting from the painting, not life, use a piece of 3-4 inch piece of card to scrape, dab, print media on, oh, and use your non dominant hand….you will be amazed at the result…trust me….(I’m a dopted) x
