Slumped Fluid Acrylic Shoulders

After a lot of thought, I've decided to set the waterlily aside for a while. I have this very annoying habit that is hard to break and that is ... I won't start a new painting until I've finished the current one. (Or I'd never finish any of them. I think that's the convuluted reason that developed this habit.) So, each time I feel like painting, I come in here, look at the waterlily, slump my shoulders and walk out again. Without painting. I've lost all inspiration for it, I think. So, I'm going to just set it aside. Not be done with it and quit. Just set it aside with plans on coming back to it.

In the meantime, I am going to start the same painting on watercolour paper and work in watercolour. I need to get back to watercolour so I can play in it knowing what to expect.

But, I'm not finished with the fluid acrylic one yet, Deb Ward!! Just taking a short hiatus.

Stay tuned .......

I'm looking forward to seeing the water lilies in watercolor Deb. Do you write the palette you used for the acrylic painting on a card or in a journal?

Well Deb, I definitely wanted to see this one finished but if it's making you not to paint I'm with you, just put it on the unfinished pile and start something new! ;)

Was reading this post and saw my name - I got that funny feeling I used to get in high school when my name was called and I didn't have the answer (gulp)! But then I realized you were just saying that there will be a finish to that painting - s o m e t i m e! Now I'm looking forward to seeing the W/C version. Glad you liked the paper plate idea for the acrylics!
Next week my life will not be so hectic and I hope to post a painting done in fluid acrylics - stay tuned!!!
