This is part of an oil painting where things haven’t quite gone the way I want it to. Then again, when does ever?!
Having everything go the way I think at the start is a sure way of not painting a masterpiece. The process of letting the idea, brush and colours lead the way is a sure way of discovering things.
This painting sits in the kitchen easel and I see it all the time. I’m a novice in painting, and even more so in painting with oil. I’m eager to make quantum leaps in my painting and looking at something I’m not that happy with yet is part of that leaping process. I think I have a golden nugget right here!
Part of a painting.
