Here’s the last day of photos showing my process and progress while working on the oil painting called “adams lane.”
As I looked back over this last set of photos, I find it hard to believe that I spent an entire day painting the trees. How is that possible? Somehow, I guess that’s just what it took to make them look “right” (aka perfect.)
This is actually a recurring theme for me. I always underestimate time. And I always NEED to make things “right” (aka perfect) before moving on with my life. Unfortunately, this is in 99% of ALL areas of my life–not just my paintings.
Not to make excuses, but I think that’s simply part of the curse/blessing of being a highly creative person.
We operate in the Right Side of our brains. There are NO CLOCKS in right-brain-land. And honestly, we don’t even want the clocks in their either.
All the clocks are hanging in the Left Side of our brains.
I try to stay out of that side as much as possible, so fortunately for me I live with my brain’s polar opposite: an engineering and numbers genius. 🙂
All this to say… my painting is basically DONE! A day or two behind my intended schedule, but I’m quite pleased with it. Let’s just hope that my client Ron LOVES it! (If he does, my full-day of tree painting will be well worth the extra time.)
Thanks for showing the step by step of your painting. I do the same often at the blog at http://www.creativelyfit.com and on our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/TheArtistWithinU Cheers! Whitney
