Reworking and renewal

One thing indecisive people like me find appealing about painting with acrylics is that, unlike with many art media, you don’t ever have to feel you are “stuck” with an outcome. You can always take something you felt was less than wonderful and keep working on it. I suppose this is both a blessing and a curse, as it can lead to a difficulty with moving on. In any case, I had a couple of Primordials done last year that I was never fully satisfied with. Those got a makeover recently and are now ready for sharing with the world.

Ironically, there was a third painting I was going to include in this reworking post, but once I put the before and after images together, I decided I still didn’t like it. So back into the mill it goes, until next time.

    What do you use to make your white markings? It doesn’t look like a brush stroke.
