Been really busy with the Pikaland bootcamp stuff. This past week was a tough one for me – we were asked to be inspired by an existing work of art (preferably in person, but that did not work out so well) – I chose Remedios Varo, a very long-standing love of mine (back to age 17 or 18 or so) and I felt a great deal of pressure to try to live up to her. I wound up drawing approximately the same sketch many times, finally started painting one and chucked it after a few hours’ worth of work on it because it was absolute crap. Did a new sketch (pencils and some brush pen) and liked it. I’ve started coloring it digitally but it still has a long way to go – after all that time I had to just swallow it and move on. Maybe after bootcamp is over I’ll finish coloring it.
