So I don’t know why I did this today. I even bought a beautiful posey of pink roses I wanted to paint after lunch. This was so difficult! It narrowly escaped me swiping it with turps and a rag. If not for the challenge, I probably would have. Either that, or at least have waited to work on it again tomorrow. I caught a glimpse of myself in the bathroom mirror and the light was coming in from the room next to it…so I thought I’d try it again. I couldn’t see myself as well since the mirror was farther away…making it really hard to see what the heck my lips looked like…but I thought it would force me to be more painterly…Yeah, right…I do like the strong light…I think I should give it a rest though and come back to do another one in a week or so.
