Unfinished work. How rarely we artists show this stage of our process on social media! I, like others, am definitely guilty of preferring a pretty grid to one filled with work in progress.
And yet, a lot of my pieces are the most interesting in this stage. There are so many directions in which this could go. More detail, less detail, adding a background colour, reducing the white space, choices, choices!
Plus, since I’m working in paint there’s always the possibility of going wrong! Thankfully that can be fixed somewhat once it’s scanned in and edited digitally.
What do you think of this piece? It’s intended to be a Christmas card. Would you send it to your friends and family?
