This ia a corner of a failed effort that I thought was fun.

I don't see the failed in it.. but once in awhile its therapeutic to bring out your less cherished work and bare all. Good colors as usual and I like the car design. But I'm still wondering what's under hood #2...

In this corner pic I thought the car had morphed into something else a more abstract shape, hence the "Fun Pic" header. I liked it, I just thought it showed something different. It is part of a larger puzzle that I could never solve. I thought it was a salvageable piece of a failed composition. It is also a style of painting that is more whimsical or something and I don't think I have successfully used it yet in a larger composition.

Ahhhhhhh ... so thx for that! If we're not enjoying the work then what are we really doing?

Silly as it may be I still love to paint the old cars. Without a place to play (the old car variations)) I never would have learned to paint. Also I think I have a unique way of presenting this subject matter that I have earned through intense and prolonged dedication to the notion that it was a "fun thing" to do. I have earned my style and for better or worse I am very proud of that because I think it is a very difficult thing to do. I would rather have my own style and be still working on it than copy someone else's more polished program. Better a crappy me than trying to be a good someone else.

Well said. Have you ever done or thought of doing solo minis?

Well said... I'm hopping off the train. Gonna catch another express to a better destination.

Michele, sorry, my brain is spinning-I just sent an article off and I was afraid of losing it. What are solo minis, do you mean the small English cars?

ron said...

W.K., you are going to have to explain. No more Moore on DPs- if so let me say this, you are one of the most popular painters for people coming into the site. I know this cause I downloaded the sites tracking device.

Today provides a good example of nothing in particular. I put up a painting which I thought would be of some interest to other watercolourists. It has some good painting in it. Bink it up to exploded view and it is interesting to look at. 5 hits. Hee hee oooh.

Nice colors Ron... I don't think you've failed.

ron said...

Thanks, Kee, I cut it out of a larger painting that didn't work out.

ron, a solo mini is a miniature painting of one car.

ron said...

Michele, when I first started to paint I used a 000 brush and looking back I guess everything was a version of a miniature. Details,details...now its go big or go home, but lately I've bashed of some 1/8th sheeters.
