I also started another painting which I havent finished. I decided that I didnt like it, and so stopped painting. I like the sketch I first did, but the painting adapted and changed, and Ive grown to really dislike it. Thats why the hand is unfinished and blocked in with colour,
I think I need to spend more time drawing over and over, to get the sketch right first. But sometimes when I paint a sketch it ends up nothing like I imagined it would when painted. I think thats what happened with this piece. I guess you have to make mistakes and dislike things as a learning process, so its not all bad!
