Everything we do is indeed a work in progress.
Nothing is ever really done, it’s only abandoned…but one of the steps you must take as an artist is knowing when to abandon a piece of work.
My model, Chantette, was very generous with her time, coming in to pose for me whenever she could. With this particular piece of work I’ve done a lot of steps but I don’t think my piece does her justice.
I’ve never really been much of a painter. I am more of an illustrator, using graphite and pen and paper. I haven’t painted since two summers ago. Now with this piece I had to decide to abandon this work in progress.
