So…I have been working on this painting for longer than most. I still don’t like it, but I WANT to like it. I can’t decide if I should start over because I love the idea of this painting. I like the composition, the colors, and the concept. What I don’t love: the rendering if the dice. I also think I over blended the metallic elements of the cup. After much deliberation and reflection I think I will scrap this one and start again. The horrors! Not really. My goal is to have paintings that I really like. Paintings that I want to gaze upon. This one…well, I constantly see things to correct. Art isn’t a roll of the dice.
This place is a safe place to share and discuss the process of making art. So all comments are welcome.
Thank you for being kind.
