I have about five hours in on this piece. I needed to work with a medium I’m comfortable with to boost my confidence again. My two most recent paintings have been train wrecks. I attempted a monochromatic in acrylic but I lost five out of the eight variations I was going for, and it looks super flat and dull. The other was in oils, I was attempting a brightly colored tattoo-style floral trip but it looks more like a VW Bug full of circus clowns hit the canvas doing 80mph… So I’m going back to basics; a pencil and paper. It’s been mind numbing slow at work all week so I should be able to post a completed Michael Corleone tomorrow.
