Amazing how many paintings just never get off the ground. I have discovered that the best thing to do is simply scrape off as much of the paint as possible and move on. That is what happened to this one! It was painted en plein air and that in itself was a challenge. It is quite depressing when that happens but I think it is better to cut your losses than to keep struggling with a painting that is going nowhere.
2012 is my year of creativity and learning. I have been out of the blogging world for 5 months now all because I have been working very hard! Still life is not my favourite subject matter, but I started classes with Natalie Hirschman at the beginning of this year and this was our first class subject. I am learning so much and changing so fast it is mind blowing. I love it.
We have to be incredibly kind and patient with our artist-self.

Di, I don't think it is so much of a judgmental thing, sometimes a painting just doesn't do anything for me. When it has stood in my studio for a while and it still does nothing for me then I feel that I must move on.
