I’m going to confess something. I do not like saying I hate a painting because the ones I hate are usually the ones everyone else loves.
I also don’t like saying I love a painting because maybe people will think I don’t like ones that they like.
That being said, the entire time I did this, like most paintings, I just didn’t like it. Usually I have hope of fixing them.
Today I’m feeling very overwhelmed and I tried talking myself out of painting. I really felt like I was just going through the motions to get it done. I didn’t care that it was not going to be good.
As soon as I finished, I realized, I actually like it a lot. I’m sure some may disagree, but I especially love the splotch on her front calf. That’s the exact reason I love this medium and it is a bit of respite in a trying day. That splotch is my happy place.
Watercolor is simply lovely.
