Color Swatches

Have you ever had times when everything painted ends up in the round file?  This past week or so that is what has happened with me.  I thought a good way to get myself back on track was to do color swatches, practicing glazing/washes skills, and reading about techniques practiced by other artists.

I also did three small paintings where I dropped in colors randomly then tried to compose a painting from the random design.  They were so bad that they will not get a debut here.  I like to think of these times as working out problems/solutions, subconsciously making decisions as to how who what when where.

A big thank you to all the subscribers continuing along with me and to all of you making comments.

I know what you mean, I had/have a time like that recently, I had a post about it. But I agree with you that it will work out... I hope.

Ann, I agree with you...only last night I did a page of wet in wet washes in my sketchbook to 'play' with what happened. Great post, sure to inspire others.
