Ever struggle with an art piece?
I just wasn't connecting with this painting as I was creating her. Most paintings go through the 'ugly' stage, but this was different. While I started to get frustrated and doubt that I could ever paint anything I liked again (familiar??), I asked myself these questions:
Did it matter if I connected with the piece?
Did I want to continue?
Did I enjoy myself so far?
Did I learn something?
Could I be bold and experiment?
Did I want to go back to a familiar technique?
I asked for help from other artists in the on-line art community. Many said put her aside for a few days so that is what I did. I ended up going back to a familiar technique and adding more opaque layers and warmer colours. I feel a connection now.
I share my whole process of working through this struggle in this video.
