It?s so easy to get wrapped up in your Instagram feed. I follow so many amazing and all posting great stuff. Probably like them, there?s a number of pieces I struggle with and a percentage of these get completely rejected or made into other paintings or end up in the bin. Everyone at some point struggles. These don?t get posted on Instagram but perhaps they should.
Here?s a couple of studies I?m battling with. The idea was to do multiple studies ( about six ) both starting at the same point both worked up together to see how they all progress, how they change and develop, each piece becoming its own individual entity….. or not. It?s an experiment I?ve done a couple of times. The germ of the idea is how we are all made of the same stuff and over time and certain influences we change and become the individuals we are, even twins. No two pieces are alike. These studies are about half way through and I have to say they?re not great, there are so many things wrong with them but I?m going to keep on a battling through …. I can?t give up on them just yet. There?s a certai@ something about them.
