6x6 acrylic on panel
I tried to do some sketches from a few different angles before I started this piece. I admit I haven't done that in awhile, but I've kind of been struggling with still life lately and it did make me feel a little more in control and familiar with the subject before I started painting. I'm always anxious to dive right in with the paint, but in the end I think I might have saved some time from those few minutes of sketching at the start. I know, I know. It's not a new secret and it's quite obvious really. I just forget the obvious things sometimes, and then when things don't go right I think I'm just a terrible painter.... I should write all the obvious things down and keep the list close by when I'm painting!
