Phoebus. Watercolour and Charcoal. 14.75 x 10.75 inches.

I think I've lost my way. Although I start out with all good intentions I find my ideas get hijacked half-way through and get taken into a different direction.

Although the way this painting turned out is a surprise for me, I do like the overall effect. To me it looks like a work created in oil rather than watercolour.


  1. love it!! Full of energy!! GREAT piece!

  2. I think artists work in two different ways. Some have the vision in their heads before they start, then execute it. Others enjoy the serendipity/chaos. It can be scary to let go if you're used to control, but it can also be exhilirating.

    BTW, have you been looking at stained glass lately? This piece reminds me a lot of light through a stained glass window (a modern one -- like the Matisse Vence Cathedral designs). It's a great piece.

  3. Yes, I think I fall into the serendipity camp from time to time. It can be exciting and very frustrating at the same time though.


Thankyou for taking time to comment on my blog. It's good to get feedback, I really do appreciate it.
