Not as loose as my usual style. Definitely feeling my way through this one.
Thought I’d have another bash at storks as I didn’t get quite where I wanted to with the last try. Better but there is still something eluding me.
Edit: No. This chap is good. Took a couple of days to get under the skin.
Bit of a departure in subject matter here but I’ve learned you just have to go with your gut on these things. Very enjoyable and a great combination of subjects.
A painting of a very special dog. Looking good I think.
After something clicking with the irises last week I thought I’d try my old nemesis - sunflowers. All that yellow can be overwhelming and it’s really hard to get the petals without them looking extremely rigid. In this case I think the balance between definition and looseness is just about right. One for the win column.
Now this one I started last night and walked away half way through in disgust. I fully intended to put this in the ‘burn’ pile this morning. Looking at it afresh, however, I thought maybe there’s something worth rescuing. by the time I’d put in the boats I think it has redeemed itself
Verdict? I think it has something. Too soon to tell.
Edit: Yes definitely something. Strange how it’s hard to tell immediately after finishing.
