I found the photo for this one on Paint my Photo and thought it would make a great painting subject.
My first attempt was not the best, so I scraped it off.
I’m learning to be less disappointed by these false starts as I know they are all part of the journey.
Just because I didn’t end up with something I wanted to show people, doesn’t mean it was a failure.
I learnt from what went wrong the first time, and ended up with a much stronger painting for my second attempt.
Besides, I enjoyed the painting process (until it started to go wrong), and enjoyment is the main reason I paint anyway, so it’s all good!
How do you feel when your painting (or other creative endeavour) doesn’t go as planned? Leave a comment and let me know.
