So we are in second draft with Acid Trips with Jesus, woo hoo….on schedule so far.. I write then outline then write again. I know everyones method is different but this seems to work best for me. I write a random peice then do an out line discarding and keeping what works and what wont. This is the point where the book blossoms into life and sometimes builds itself kind of like my paintings do.
On to my next painting. I am using my controlled flow technique and doing a feild of poppies so while i lay the background colors it occurs to me that i now see, really see how a field of flowers accoring to color is planted. HMMM. Interesting revelation today. Then i look up at one of my acrylic flow works and damn if you cant see a fairy talking to an animal, deer or cat i think. The most beautiful wings simply wait for you to notice them. Amazing that acrylic flow are can teach you to see kind of in a reverse way. I know it’s helped me improve my art very quickly.
Sometimes as artist we are our only teacher, when we level up we know it. And sometimes we need other opinions to validate our art and find out kind of like house shopping with an agent what you like or dont like about things. The best part is when you KNOW your better and dont need validation. It’s a new feeling for me.
