Split Decision(s)

So it was a mostly good day, though one piece did not turn out as well as I had hoped. I use to be really good at feet. I’ve lost my touch. Just another reminder that I should draw more. The other piece unexpectedly WOWed! me. It’s not the least like my reference which you will see. I like the flow of it. As I talked about yesterday it’s been exciting me being very aware of how many decisions I make as an artists. This particular painting had a decision to be made with every brush stroke. Especially since I started the piece changing where the center of interest was. Well actually, I started by taking a picture of my backyard at night, then manipulated it with the “cut out” filter Photo Shop Elements.
