Worst nightmare! Every time I start a portrait there is a part of me wonders if I can still do it. I don’t really have a formula. I taught myself and I am still learning. I sometimes think it is magic.
This is the second day that I have been trying to paint a face in the middle of a bigger painting and now I have painted it out twice.
It was the most scary and upsetting time this afternoon when I started again and despite measuring and checking everything the result was worse.
I have now given up for the day. This is the worst I have felt in years. Good thing my sister was around to chat to . Think I might need a day or 2 off.
On the brighter side at least my back is not so sore.
