I TOOK AN ARTISTIC WALK ABOUT
& CHINESE JOURNEY SERIES-PANDA SANCTUARY.
I Photo had frozen and I could not upload pictures of my art work. I tried everything I could think of then called for tech support and magically it was fixed. This was painted in low light and I won't know the results until it is hung on someone's wall or in a gallery so no lesson learned here.
I also finished the China-Red Bench that I started a blog or two ago. I was using neutrals to enhance the bright red of the bench. When I left it was in that; "ugly painting" stage and I honestly thought I would chuck it out. Using pen and ink I added detail and punched up the contrast with blue plus I tried to use negative space painting to give the illusion of bamboo. Put a mat around it and it isn't half bad.
Wait a day or a week before giving up on a painting.
