I didn't originally intend to draw the boy, but once I had painted the background then I loved the white empty space where I had left room for him. But it was not clear as to what he was. So I thought I would draw him in to give him that much needed clarity, instead of painting him. I wont change it now but I am still undecided if I like or not. Someone described it as looking like a ghost of a boy and that made me feel sad and maybe thats why I cant warm to it?
I loved doing it and had planned on doing a series of items on beach, this was to be the next one,
I then started painted peddles on a beach instead, but I didn't like the colour and it seemed empty and boring
So yesterday I painted over it again!!! (sorry about the rotten picture, hoping my new camera will come soon)
Its going to be driftwood on the beach, well that is if I don't loose my temper again and paint over it
And this is one of the reasons I like watercolours, once you have committed then there is no going back and changing your mind, which I do a lot! Thats the problem with acrylics, I just slap paint over it and start again and goodness knows when it will get finished....if it gets finished
I am hoping when I get in the studio later I will be inspired to carry it on, but more than likely I will dust and clean and put painting off as long as I can!
I did do one good thing I bought some acrylic inks. I have only used them once so far but I think they are going to be good to work with, especially when I am in the mood for bright colour . This was my test piece.
I should really work some more with it and see what I can really produce, i m hoping it may loosen my work up a bit. Lets Hope March is a much more proactive month...
