Don’t give up

Sometimes I struggle with a piece. This is a good example of a piece like that. It started with some ink play that just got worse with every color I add on top of it.

I kept adding, and cursing at how horrible it looks. Then I walk away. But it pulls me back in. I add more colors. It’s a mess. I go to bed. Tried again the next day. More layers. And then all of a sudden it clicked. A whale appeared. I like it now. Glad I did not throw it in the trash😂 art is a journey. Just like life. Don’t give up. Keep at it. Walk away, take a breather. Try again. It will all work out. If it doesn’t, you’re not there yet. So keep going…
