A day of startsPosted: January 6, 2016
My references to the Charles Hawthorne book may get tedious, I warn you, but there is much to learn. Here is one that is relevant to my day. “Do studies, not pictures. Be alive. Stop when your interest is lost. Put off finish as it takes a lifetime — wait until later to try to finish things —make a lot of starts.” That was me today — a lot of starts. Four to be precise. Two in my car, on location (both disasters) and two in my studio, of this same scene at MacDonald Farm. Fortunately I had the time to keep at it today, which doesn’t happen that often. Painted on Arches paper, 15″ x 7″.
