I've been trying to create paintings with my new-to-me texture on a smaller scale. These are my Square Footers, 12 x 12. In the first, I tried to loose my new dependence on outlining, but the work ends up more realistic than I had planned. The second paintings is a definite extension of my recent work--on a more common topic, flowers. What do you think?
I am the author of Master Disaster, 5 Ways to Rescue Desperate Watercolors. Based on a course that I have developed over many years, the bones of this book give you a plan to finish your paintings--and even your bombs. The meat of my book and course, though, is to help you structure your life to encourage and accommodate painting. Painters have to paint. This is how to do it.
