Spider Orchid – revisited

Leave a comment

As tonight was the last night of class for this term, I decided to revisit the Spider Orchid painting that I had to put down last year (or else I would have torn it up – I was feeling very frustrated that it just wasn’t working the way I wanted it to).

I’m still thinking that I am going to start from scratch, but I have learnt a lot about what I like and don’t like when it comes to painting through this work.

The background is still too defined for my liking, but there is improvement.

There is only so much pastel a sheet of Colourfix can take. But I’m not giving up on this quite yet.
