Editing is Easier


Take these sunflowers, for example. The hardest part was last summer, when I sketched out the basic forms in blue and goldenrod. Then they languished in my "studio" (ha!) for several months, until they were needed. I finished them in a 20-minute rush session. Hooray!

I love it. It's got me thinking. Maybe I should take down some of my paintings from the cave wall in the passageway from the sacred quarters and see if I can scan it into the computer. Editing on the computer is much easier than painting over mistakes because you can change the color balance for the whole picture or for selected areas. I ruined a whole painting once because I didn't remember which cadmium yellow was yellow-orange and which was Yellow-green. They both looked "yellow" to me but once you put it in context in a painting, it can be a disaster...
