Of the Moment Oils on watercolour paper 7 x 11 inches ON HOLD
This study was a trial to see how far I could go with oils and abuse of the paper surface. It seems I could really take liberties and here is a very textured study of storm clouds over the harvested fields. I threw lots of paint at this painting and scraped back several times.
On completion I was ready to discard the piece but in the interests of research and development it was not a failure so I decided to post it for all to see!
When I joined Daily Paintworks I made a commitment to paint daily and post my art online. I realised my resolution to post everyday depended on completed work and after proclaiming to the world I would blog daily there was no turning back.
Persistance has been the key. I feel happy about (most of) my work and I credit this to making the effort to stay with it through good and bad. If a piece is destroyed..(and there are some)... I paint another. And another.
