Those two month were about the worst and the best. I had a hard time struggling on my bigger painting. I couldn’t manage to resolve it. Scaling up too fast appreared to be quite difficult and I couldn’t figure out was was wrong. When struggle went too heavy, I made a break with the two free workshops I mentioned last time, and the review of last year notebook made me realize I had made two big mistakes :
- first, with scaling up, I was not using enough paint and the layers were too thin (on one of my page I had written THICK paint, just good to remind !),
- second and biggest, I was trapped in the rush for results and lost all pleasure in the process.
So I switched my mind to something else and joined figure drawing month challenge. It was great fun to relax and loosen up with ink quick drawings.
Petits croquis d’1 ou 2 minutes, un vrai défi !
More of those inks
And back to painting I began fresh again playing with inks…
And enjoyed every minute of it with a whole new series. now in my portfolio…
April shall be a win !
I had the great opportunity to join a big exhibition in Lyon :
The playing sessions also helped me review small works to join two local exhibitions.
