That's where the stubborn came in. I don't like being defeated by things or giving up so I decided to spend the rest of the week trying get better at negative painting--focusing on painting background foliage. I think that day 142 and 143 turned out pretty well for that.
And, even though they aren't background foliage, I really like days 144 and 145 because I love seeing the texture you get when you add salt to wet watercolor.
But, the last two days--brainless. I forgot to really think about what I was doing and it shows...I know that I'm not going to be happy with every painting that I do but I'd like to not keep making the same mistakes over and over again...sigh.
I just have to keep telling myself over and over that I am getting better at this the more I practice...
