EDM #44 and 120 Paintings #2
a lot of sketches of my cats and one thing I learned is it was much harder for me to paint him then draw him. I also learned 'relax'! It is 120 'bad' paintings. I started this last Thursday and it took
a lot longer than the one or two hours that you're supposed to give yourself. I started fretting and worked really late on it until my eyes felt like they were looking out the side of my head. I stopped and thought I was far from finished and didn't come back to take a look at it until Monday night when to my surprise I realized he was DONE! I just needed to highlight his eyes. I was shocked but it taught me something. That is one mistake I keep making, I keep working and working on a piece and
over work them too often. Walk away, leave it and look at it another day!
