The progress of my painting of a haboob (giant dust storm) hitting Phoenix, Arizona where I live. I'm going to see this one out until the end, but I don't know, there's something off about this one. If feel better about my ability to fix it if I was working on a wood panel, but there's a limit with how much you can work over something when you're using paper.
I'm not being all weird and over critical, because I don't pin all my hopes a dreams on one piece, just honest with myself about how I want it to be. I know youre supposed to pretend youre the best painter ever and everything you do is golden when youre on instagram, but thats fake and boring. Id rather this profile reflect the real processes of art making. If youre happy with everything you do, youre not really taking risks and I don't know what the point would be.. Not all hope is lost though, I still need to finish and paint the city, but I'd say we're heading for at least a solid C+ painting. .
