I created the canvas painting above this week as part of this challenge.
What was difficult?
Starting. I didn’t feel that inspired at first, but once I simply starting with something I had in my head that seemed interesting it was all fine.
What was fun?
Seeing my painting develop. When I started I wasn’t sure yet how it would turn out and I was deciding on the color use as I was going, so the outcome always is somewhat of a surprise. It was also the first time I made a video like this of my painting; it’s fun to see work change and grow.
What did I learn?
I feel like I am developing in my painting and drawings. I am experimenting more, and I would have never used colors like blue, pink, green and yellow all in one face a year ago. It’s fun to notice that I am learning by doing and am making more risky choices, like dripping paint or using wild color combinations.
