A ballerina A Painting a day
I’d like to say that every painting turns out just as I planned. But this isn’t always the case. I struggled with this painting.
There is something that just didn’t make it from vision to paper. This doesn’t mean its not a good painting, it just means it turned out differently then planned. I am going to study this painting and see if there is something that needs adjustment. Usually after a day or so I can spot anything that needs correction.
Painting a painting every day doesn’t always give you the time to let a painting sit. Frequently a painting needs to sit aside and be brought out later. This times allows the artist, time to get a little distance from the piece, then do a little editing. Much like a copy editor before press time.
