I’ve been painting a lot lately and enjoying it. It’s helping me get through some difficult times. When I paint, all I think about is painting. Is there anything you do that gets you through difficult times?
Here is today’s painting. I’ve been admiring the work of Georges Rouault so I imitated his style.
Sometimes I have a hard time thinking of a subject to paint – it’s like writer’s block, but artist’s block. Last night I saw a lady on Youtube that wrote subjects on small strips of paper and put them into a cup then drew one and that would be her subject to paint. She also did it with colors. So I did that and this morning I drew the subject cityscape and the colors yellow, blue and teal. You will see other colors in this painting but I allowed myself to mix colors with those colors. Anyway, I love this process because the result is something I never would have thought of on my own.
This is painted with acrylics on a 5″ x 7″ canvas board. I have listed in on eBay here
