Another couple of hours while listening to Tom Yourke’s Sispiria.
To think I nearly scrapped this two days ago. I went to bed frustrated and disheartened ready to cut the page out of the book in the morning. The next day ( day 2), I washed over it with burnt umber glazes as discussed in a previous post.
Today, with Tom Yorke CDs playing, I get to this stage. It looks better in the sketchbook than in this photo.
There is a lesson to tell the kids at school. They often abandon pictures in the first half feeling a frustration akin to my feelings the other day. I must urge them to persist and show them how to fix rather than scap unfinished artworks.
