Lots of thinking about process and result most of the time... trying to do better everyday... one step at a time... little by little. I might one day produce something that feels 100% like my own, hopefully.
An odd feeling today, the feeling that we learn a lot from our errors. I mean much more than we really think. These are quick sketches. I'm quite happy with the session and the result, specially as I've been feeling this autumn that progress is slow. And many times I end up saying to myself "this is how I DON'T want to paint". So, today I kept my last days errors in mind. And it felt like it worked. My conclusion is also that we don't obtain anything difficult without firm determination, and we need a special way of active thinking, it all under a great concentration.
I finally got something out of my efforts! This might all be very personal, and maybe YOU don't like the result, but that doesn't matter much, as we are only doing sincere work listening to ourselves, not trying to please others. We can only produce original work, when obeying our nature. And I'm only sorting out what my nature is since I started drawing and painting, it takes time and efforts working hard, but it's worth it!
I have a bunch of blocks and papers I should use up at home. Findings might come through with old paper blocks, and without spending time and money searching more new stuff!
