So much of being an artist is trial and error; failing and learning and trying again. My current painting started as a grisaille (a grayscale painting) which I intended to bring to life with thin glazes of color. It did not work at all, and I ended up having to opaquely cover everything underneath. It’s been a long, oft-painful lesson, but I’m SO CLOSE to being done, and I can’t wait to show you all the result of my labor of love.
