From my studies over the past week I reached an unavoidable conclusion: I can't take shortcuts or I end up not liking the work. Then it takes me twice as long as it would have to correct it as it would have if I had just done what I should have done from the start.
The whole exercise began when I decided that I need to paint faster. My motive was twofold. I thought that this would allow the inner emotions and instincts to take over my cerebral approach to my art. Second, I have seen on instagram that many artists produce work at a prolific pace and I admit to wanting to be like them and do a work every 1-3 days. Well, as said, that caused me to fail.
Here is a painting that I did fairly quickly. I don't like it very much and if I don't, how can I expect to reach my prospective viewer. So, I am starting afresh. I can't call it starting from scratch, as I will work with what I have. But I want to see if this can reach anywhere I would like to go with it.
