Need to do better...
Not a particularly good effort this afternoon. Normally when things aren't going too well, my fail safe thing is to do a horse. Made a few errors with this, so that didn't bode to well at the start. First should have centred it better when I sketched it, and secondly should have worked in oils. The linen was primed for oils and the acrylics I was using didn't sit on it well. I guess I should be happy that I got something done at all, but, that's not how I tick. I think somewhere along the road something has changed and painting has become more of a chore than a passion. Now I just have to find a way to turn that back around!
