THE ROAD TO SUCCESS IS DECORATED WITH FAILURE.
I thought I would start this thread after reading the 'how to be miserable as an artist' thread.
I am going through a rough patch with my painting, and I know many of us do at some point.
So, let's celebrate our failures!
The painting below was to be an entry in one of the DMP challenges. I obviously didn't make the deadline LOL
The colours strings are now dried hard.
My high hopes nothing but a shame stained canvas.
I may yet resurrect this work but the lessons for me-
do not attempt a big new painting after you have completely reconfigured your studio without checking you lighting first!
know when to stop trying to paint when it just isn't working and instead adjust 'the conditions' instead of 'adjusting the painting'
