Snippet Sunday

So, an oil painting in order to feel accomplished, not like an utter hack...

Yeah, look under the cut to see how that worked out for me.

I worked on my pyramids and was quite happy with how much fun I was having. But then J came along and, quite rightly and quite honestly, said, "It is a good reproduction but you need to take it a step beyond."

So, I tried. And didn't like it. And tried something else. Didn't like it either. In fact, I hated it with white-hot hate.


Instead if keeping on, I decided to scratch it all. That is exactly what I did. I took my paint knife and scraped off all the paint. The subject was never interesting enough to begin with. Nothing was special about the light or what I was achieving, so:

(this image isn't showing up for frigg, so it might not show up for others. Not to worry, it is only a blank canvas. You aren't missing me making a further fool of myself. :P )
I applied primer and will try something else.

Stay tuned.
