The Drawing Board: self-doubt, frustration, serenity, bliss (repeat!)
I was back at my drawing board today after a long time away from watercolor paper and gouache. I puttered and puttered before finally getting down to business, which usually means I’m anxious about starting. Sometimes at the start of a new project, before I get some good momentum, I start to ruminate and doubt all the little decisions I’m about to make. But once I get the brush or pencil on the paper, I can inch my way into the zone. For this new project, I found it helpful to revisit some older work of mine from CAT’S COLORS (Child’s Play, 2016). I liked what I had done with brush strokes and layers and tried to retrace my steps. I‘m currently in the ”bliss“ phase of this painting — I‘ll keep you posted!
