7x5in watercolor on paper NFS
I have painted this little goldfinch
several times, and I have
many little sketches of him and his less
colorful mate, busy building their nest.
I thought I could just pop a little painting out
as I was very familiar with the subject.
You would think I would know better by now.
Painting is unpredictable.
Pressure...it is the darn "Challenge" and
I thought with panic... I can't miss after
only three days
So I moved on to do a different bird
and just to let you see how frustrated I got
here is what an exasperated brush
can do! See the complete loss of white paper.
Back to the goldfinch to see if I could
rescue it. By this time I am tired and frustrated.
Pity Party Time.
I had classes all day at the guild,
and did not start painting until 8pm.
I was tired as in midnight tired.
Hubby dearest suggested fresh eyes
in the morning would help.
I splattered and used some
chinese white on the nest.
Have to think about it some more...
But at least I posted!
