The other day I posted about working with a journal or journal page close at hand while painting your larger pieces, and here we are today and you can see she is coming along....not done yet but much farther along then just a blank page.
I have a new little collection just about complete from this last weeks art session and it feels good! Not only that...I of course have the journal page above almost complete. There's something to be said about seeing the fruits of your efforts come alive. I have a lot of works in progress but not as many as I used to. I am in love with beginning things but have to be pushed to finish them. I guess it's because there are so many ideas floating in my head and I want to capture them or at least start to capture them before they float away....
and before they float away....I move on to the next thing that is in my mind :) As depicted here with my two other works started before I have finished the journal page....lol. Some habits are hard to break.
I justify it as being productive while paint dries. :)
So tell me, what's your style...do you go with the flow or just see what happens? Are you an a-z type and finish on thing before moving on to the next? Do you sketch out and then paint or do you mix it up and let it evolve as you go? There is no one right way or wrong way to create. Whatever works for you is the ticket! Just do it is what I say!
