Salvaging A Failed Painting…

As an artist is always learning at whatever stage of the game, it stands to reason there’ll be a few screwed up pieces of paper and unfinished canvases along the way. This one was almost 5 feet tall when I worked on it, I tried to get it right but it simply wasn’t having a bar of it. I’ve been through this a couple of thousand times or more over the years so naturally, thought nothing of it. Luckily I thought to take a photo of it before I painted over it, and equally lucky that I know my way around a Wacom tablet and painting software. I salvaged it with very little work and I’m happy as a result.

A win.
