Day 13

"beagle sketch"
3" x 4"
watercolor & watercolor pencil

I painted a lot again today, and still didn't "finish" a painting.  I ruined one painting, maybe beyond saving.  Sketched out a new painting, and took several passes at a promising one whose background I just can't figure out how to deal with...  In the end, the only thing I liked well enough was this tiny sketch of a bigger painting.  Again, I'm liking the freshness and getting frustrated when I overwork things.  I guess everyday can't be a productive day, but the process leading up to those days is important.
