Here’s an update on the Glory painting.
I have finished Glory herself except for the mane, forelock and eye and some touchups once the background is finalized. She is coming along nicely, and I’m very pleased so far.
It’s always nerve wracking to paint when I haven’t been for a long time and my self confidence suffers terribly the longer it goes on. But, what I’m finding with Glory is that I’m going a lot on instinct. That tells me that I know a lot more than I think I do and haven’t lost much ability in the intervening time.
In other words, I’m better than I think I am. And not as good as I’d like to be.
For that matter is any artist ever as good as she’d like to be?
