I want to note the process, however. An artist, like anyone, must practice and work every single day, and he or she must do so without seeing results. I know that sounds crazy but it's absolutely true. One must produce until the results come. There is no amount of planning of a painting that will allow it to magically appear. The painting must be developed through hours and hours of practice. This does not mean that a specific painting can't be painted in a short session of an hour. Of course it's possible; but that painting can't occur without the artist having developed over time, unless the artist gets lucky.
I say this because this particular painting came in one sitting. It was the first of my watercolors that I was satisfied with after the first attempt. All the others took at least two, with one taking three attempts and I'm still not happy with its development. I painted that "failure" over and over again seeing no progress. For a new medium this can be frustrating, but I continued knowing that no progress would mean substantial progress all at once at some point. A week's worth of frustration was finally rewarded, and I have my example of work with no results everyday yields results on the final day, before a new process begins. Am I satisfied overall? I have a long way to go, but thus far I am enjoying this new medium.
