Hi friends! Sorry this post is late, I uploaded it to YouTube yesterday for Sketchbook Sunday but was too busy yesterday to blog it. My son is getting ready to take is drivers licence test and needs more hours of practice to be eligible so we drove down to visit my parents and sister and her family. We had a great time but got home late and I could barely keep my eyes open long enough to get through my email.
So better late than never right? This painting was a struggle. I almost tossed it in the fire pit about halfway through. But the awesome thing about almost giving up hope on a painting is the freedom in knowing “well, I can’t make it any worse!” and then you can relax and have fun. I hope this in enjoyable to watch and I hope it shows you that everyone struggles sometimes.
