OK...so I slightly exaggerate, but I AM "Terrified" and "Tarying" (Procrastinating) on my latest commission!! It's a house portrait measuring 24 X 50 inches, quite a lot of brickwork and trees/foliage which they really want captured. EVERY TIME I start a new painting, I always have the same "terror": Will I be able to pull it off this time? What if I spend 20 hours on this and find I've goofed it up beyond redemption? Watercolor is very unforgiving, and it feels like such a puzzle of layers and techniques......ANYONE ELSE ever feel this way on whatever they are working on? So...I'm gonna talk myself through this one...paint a little, then while it's drying and I'm "thinking" out my next move on the piece...I'll reward myself by taking a break on Threadless:)
Here are some pictures of the initial stages (I already made one mistake I'll have to correct, missed putting in the bottom 2 left windows! I use transfer paper for certain kinds of preliminary work, and I missed them!):
Original Post (Aug. 31)Hi, I've been working hard these past two weeks to complete 2 watercolors for a show I'm doing tomorrow! Wish me luck! These originals are 22 X 30 inches. Hopefully now I can get back to some time and energy for another Threadless sub before too long!
Thanks for looking:)
