I have a part of me that just can't rest until I have solved a niggling art puzzle in my mind. The jigsaw pieces of learning.
Somewhat unhappy with yesterday's demo in my teaching class, see previous blog post, I allowed myself some time today to do a study from that class demo to figure out for myself what I would have liked to have seen come off my brush.
This is what I was thinking:
*too slap-dash looking
*not sensitive enough
*NOT THE SHIMMER EFFECT I WANTED ON THAT LOVELY SKIN
*you can do so much better
*don't let sleeping dogs (demos) lie. learn from them.
So this is what I am now thinking:
* I am glad I worked on my art puzzle.
* it is rewarding.
*it is part of the journey
*paint by numbers much easier - and possibly in my future
