Painting is really really painful – so why the hell do I do it? Well anyone who has been bitten by the bug knows the answer to this – I just have to. It is the same as any other addiction and I am addicted. I hope this doesn’t sound too up my own arse but it is who I feel. I just have to paint or create something new.
So what is the story about this painting? On Monday I made a rather bad drawing of this young woman and I wasn’t happy with my efforts. In my defence I was working in an art class with all the pressures this brings so now I’m back in my studio and I can take my time and slowly build up the paint, mistake by mistake.
Let us see where this takes me.
