As the title says I am back from vacation (that’s why I haven’t posted for a week). We were up north and stayed in Rosh Pina in a great zimmer (that’s a holiday apartment in English) called “Ruach Beharim” which I heartily recommend. If you look at the pictures you can kind of see what we saw and did while we were away.
I tried to make some more headway with the latest picture this evening but it doresn’t seem to be going anywhere. To recap, the picture is of a quiet pool with some reeds around and floating on it. I can’t seem to get the water to look watery. Maybe I’m trying too hard. Maybe I should give it a break and do something else. It’s very frustrating, all the more so because I have the feeling that it isn’t progressing because I’m out of practice and I just don’t have time to study, practise or experiment. Although some of my recent work would definitely say otherwise I get this feeling that I’m going downhill because I don’t have enough time to dedicate to painting. Very frustrating.
