This painting has had many layers. Depending on how confident I feel, certain layers stay, well they last till the next day when insecurity takes over and angst and frustration...
This is fairly typical of my progress with paintings, I think it's the investment in something big, doubts about being good enough...
I love art journaling and teaching others to paint, but I wonder can self belief be taught? Where does it come from? Where does it go? Working intuitively is hard, as there is no predetermined end. By completing many processes and layers the painting reveals itself.
I love being an artist, and I love learning and experimentation. And I love it when it all comes together finally. And if it doesn't, well I just start another layer 😁
Stay tuned for the next reveal.
I am an artist and teacher and I love to share what I know and what I learn. I was previously a high school art teacher, now I enjoy art journaling, mixed media, pottery, painting and teaching adults from my home studio.
