Oh dear !! My mural is at the stage where it looks a bit underwhelming. It is actually going okay. I’m gradually getting the whole surface covered and it looks like it will work.
I know this…..or I am fairly sure that it will look good when it’s finished.
But, for people who can’t see inside my head and don’t know that I work by painting everything roughly so that I can see it will work together it must be somewhat worrying.
I suppose some artists might begin by painting one thing properly and then working their way across the painting, but I can’t.
So , tonight I was “acting” as if I knew what I was doing and trying to explain in Italian that it will get better, really!!!
Mama mia!! I need a glass of wine tonight.
I probably used up a month’s worth of confidence .
However I have reached the point where I start to add details and am past the worst part…..I think.
I was so uptight that I nearly forgot to take photos on the way home.
I’m a little bit impressed with myself. A few years ago I would have felt under pressure and discouraged , but I very nearly believed in myself tonight.
