Back to painting a bit today. I wanted to keep it mixed up a bit so I don’t get burnt out on drawing all the time. This was actually very good and yet bad. The painting was frustrating and I obviously didn’t have enough patience to spend the time on it that it needed. But, the good part is that I couldn’t wait to get back to drawing. I rushed through most of the end of the painting just so I could start drawing. In the end I’m given a healthy dose of respect for paint and a bit more motivation for drawing.
