I am feeling a little bummed out. The drawings don’t look right to me, the watercolors are going all over the place. I’m feeling like the drawings and paintings are turning in to big disasters. I’m supposed to make progress, not regress.
Watercolor day 8, I had to stop. I tried to go back and fix one of the paintings I made on the bad paper, and it’s just a big disaster. Then I started this one up and, I don’t like it. I tried a different watercolor method, less soft, and I am not sure I like it. I think I like the soft color better. It’s more cartoony. This one just looks like I tried to do some realism and failed. I do not want to paint realism, at least at this time. I want dreamy cute style paintings. Anyway, on to the watercolor painting….
I had to break up this painting in to two days. If I wasn’t trying to challenge myself to painting every day, I would have just abandoned it.
