I'm going through another mini confidence crisis. We all go through it. I can normally talk other artists through it but I can't take my own advice. Anyway, I know it's not going to last and that it's only temporary so I'll just soldier on and try to break through it one way or another.
I've painted these three small watercolours over the last two days whilst thinking about a change in direction. I need to allow for my paintings to be painted over a period of time rather than in a single session. The only problem with that is, if I screw up, I've lost a couple of days work, Hmmm! Need to look deeper into this. Anyway, I don't want to get rusty with my colours and brushes so I did these to keep my hand in. The Carrs Lane composition leaves a lot to be desired but I include it because the sense of light turned out fairly well.
I'm going to spend more time drawing over the next few days. I really do need to get back into the habit again but I desperately, desperately want to loosen up. I get so tight and worry about detail when I start to relax. I really must sort my act out. Again. Tut, tut John.
