Not easy…

Today I have arrived at an important conclusion: it is not easy to paint! Even though I have my technique and I am painting from a photo, it is still really, really hard. And as I never quite know how to approach a painting and never do it in the exact same way – and certainly not according to conventional methods (whatever they are?) – I am left hanging in the air, despairing and wondering how this is going to turn out. And on an ambitious piece like the one I am working on now, it will take a while until I feel that it is going to be ok… In any case, I love working in my studio!
