Lately I've changed my approach to acrylic painting. I'm trying to be more spontaneous and painting without preconcieved notions a la Adolph Gottlieb or Philip Guston. And it's driving me crazy second, third and fourth guessing myself. My elecrtic sander has been getting quite a workout. In reaction to those trials and tribulations, I decided to break out the watercolors. I am enjoying the change of pace and and the quickness. I can finish one fairly quickly and move on to the next idea. Speaking of ideas, for some reason turtles have been making an appearance in my sketchbooks. I'm not sure why, but I suspect it's because they're easy to draw and their primordial quality appeals to me.
