When I came home tonight I wasn't in the mood to paint at all and I spent at least an hour fussing about what to do, hovering between a pastel and doing my daily painting. The more I thought that I wouldn't do a little painting, the more guilty I felt and so I ended up with this.
As Robyn noted in my last post - I seem to be a little stuck on reds - so here I tried to introduce some other colours. I know that green is a major problem for me so I should really do something that will help me overcome that. The photo is not the clearest, I'm having a horrible time getting photos as its dark when I get home and no matter what I do they don't seem entirely accurate. If anyone has any suggestions on photographing work in the winter ..............
One thing that painting these little pictures has done for me is show me that I do also really enjoy doing more substantive work. Beginning to think seriously about starting a major piece (and finishing the blessed chair!).
