Ahhhh....I feel so much better.
I decided to do another study from the life study of jewelry designer Marla
Trudine (www.marlatrudine.com) this afternoon to make it more like her. Less bold color. More subdued. As I have talked about on the previous post, I can get really carried away with color.
And I don't like it anymore when I do. It makes me cross with myself. Small notes of high color work for me in the right place.
This was a very cathartic experience for me. And I may do it more often with a study I am not happy with. I have plenty of them! I KNOW how I want to paint when I paint from life, it just doesn't always work out the way I want it to.
This way, you can go back in, work out what you didn't like about your study, and put what is missing in the new one. Then you take the learning to the next. HOPEFULLY.
