My first painting today was a wipe-out. When a painting is a wipe out it is best to put it down mercifully. And so taking a lead from another daily painter, I decided to go back to basics and paint a pear. Pears are just good to paint. Now I decided I needed some cheering up as well and so went for some color contrast. Sure it is bit "happy" and out of season again and I struggled a bit with turning the form. The important thing is that I got over my funk and i will not have paint nightmares tonight.
