This is the closest I've come to failing to post a blog since I started this "daily painting" thing. It's almost midnight! I never stay up this late.... This painting features the same cup I painted a week or so ago. I like this cup; I can see lots of possibilities. I didn't paint this one today. I actually started today's piece off quite confidently, thinking I felt solid about the composition and the values and all that. When I was done, I felt good about the execution, but the painting is just plain boring. So that means something is wrong and I have to fix it- just like most of the others. that's why this is a learning process. I hope I can fix it and post it in the next day or so.
