The best thing about painting at The Canvas on Monday evenings is that the session is fairly short in duration, so one doesn't have much opportunity to dither..there is just enough time to throw something onto the support and call it a day.
I painted this at The Canvas a couple weeks ago. I didn't think I wanted to post it because it looked too rough to me. Tonight, upon reflection, I had a change of heart..because now, after a little consideration, I think she's acceptable in an expressionist way. She reminds me of paintings by Georges Rouault... I might paint over her someday, but in the meanwhile I will enjoy the fact that she emerged so Rouault-like.
How about you..do you ever wind up liking a painting that was initially considered (by you) to be a dog or a scraper?
