Murky Brain Soup
Sometimes that brainfog settles in and i kinda struggle to surface a thought. sometimes i wonder about all the things i did to make that brain soup so murky.
Really had fun making this. I changed direction at the beginning and started glazing to create some neat layered effects. I almost ruined it completely by going absolutely wild with some oil crayon but managed to salvage it. Thankfully the oil wiped right off. Whew.
There are some layers yet to add. Going to try to wrap it up soon. The idea in my head requires a level of detail I have not really painted before and I am actually nervous to continue, but whats the worst that could happen? I’ll just redo it.
In the past when I would get frustrated because a painting didn’t work out it would completely dismantle any motivation I had for art. It would be a defeat that would add yet more bricks to the wall. This time though, it was just a failed painting and I just wanted to try going a different direction. Not everything is going to work. Some things may work well and then get ruined because of impatience or because I just wanted to try something. It’s frustrating, but also super fun.
