Red Night Painting 48
Angela Treat Lyon
What happens when you hate what you painted and start to paint over it? Sometimes it gets better than it was in the first place.
That's what happened today. I felt like a mush head all day - by Friday, if I've been going over my limit of an hour or an hour and a half for a painting - like I have this week! - I end up exhausted.
So I started to paint a rag-tag combo of Rousseau-like elements, and got about half done and hated it. So I painted it yellow, then magenta...and all of a sudden, the mood shifted...it was sweet...and I liked it!
So I added a few more elements and presto, it was done! I like it much better than the painting I had planned, too!
