It can be rather frustrating when I can’t quite put a dob of paint exactly where I want it to go. When this happens, I go on to another part of the painting and go back to the other spot later.
And if the painting turns out good, that is also a great feeling. I do have a lot of disasters!! But hey, that’s life!!!!
Unfortunately my head control isn’t good enough to do definite objects, but I wanted to extend my repertoire recently. So I sometimes use stencils to do precise things. For example, I used a stencil for the Vase in the Daisies and Poppies painting, and when I paint my owls I have stencils and a bit of help to do the small details. Some people may say that that is cheating. I say it’s adapting my art, giving me more scope.”
