Thank you for sharing this Charlie. When I have this kind of experience, I call it arguing with the paint and feel it’s more a reflection of my overall mood than having to do with what is happening on the page. But better to argue with paint (I’m more sure to have the last word!) than with someone else and it does make me aware of how I’m feeling so that I’ll take steps to snap out of it.
Thanks Karen and Charlie for sharing this. I’m finding right now I’m about 50/50 with stuff that turns out OK and total disasters. I appreciate your sharing that not only does that happen to some of you much more seasoned with watercolor, but also for the reminder it should be more about the process than the outcome. Honestly, I’m not there yet, but working on it ;-).
