Project LV One – Day 151 – Tilt

SP 007

One of the reassuring things about not being the first in something is that you know many have been there before.  So it is with painting…I know that many painters before me have reached a point when they realise that what they have done is just wrong.  The internal contradictions become just too great, a correction here makes something else worse and so on until the whole thing collapse.  That has happened this morning.

However, as opposed to sculpture, where it is really difficult to stick the piece of stone back onto the face with painting there is always the option of painting over everything and starting again.  It is hardly the nuclear option but does mean that the lessons you learnt from the first attempt can be merged into the next mrs you are about to make.

I need to get out and purge my system.

      Ha ha…never heard that before! Anyway, you know what it is like there reaches a critical tipping point that no matter what you do it just makes things worse. Now if this wasn’t supposed to be a likeness then that would be a different matter but it was and well the best thing is to start all over again. Bo Hoo
