This has been an exhausting challenge.... and it's not over yet! One week and three paintings remain.
At the start of the month, I knew that some paintings would work and others wouldn't. Painting 12 was one of the later.
I struggled with this piece. I don't know why. Maybe because it was Sunday. Maybe I wasn't fully committed to the subject matter, or maybe it's just the way creativity is sometimes: it just wants to play and not perform.
I had some fun creating textures and layers of colour, but couldn't make the piece come together as a whole.
Here is a version of my "Henry V" inspired image that this canvas went through at some point in the day.
It has now been committed to painting heaven.
