|"Like Icarus" Watercolor on Paper 14" x 14"|
If there's been one thing that has stymied my work, it has been thinking too much about it. It's imperative to do multiple studies, to get to know the subject, to plan its placement and to make compositional decisions, but all that needs to be done before the painting begins. When the first brushstroke hits, the thinking needs to stop so that the muse can take over and create the work, rather like meditating.
Easier said than done.
Enjoy your Monday,
