Unfortunately, I haven’t had as much progress as I would have hoped. I recently completed the self-help book “Peak”, which was about deliberate practice; tt was pretty decent. I have notesĀ I took from the book, but I’d have to go through and edit them to be able to post them. I think right now I have maybe 10 other books to get through, but a chunk of those are on art-related topics.

As for my projects, I have been chipping away at my Van Gogh [marker] reproduction as well as my Cthulhu-themed coloured pencil piece. I’m only working part time on each of them along with some other things, so progress isn’t that great right now.

I’m hoping to get back into painting shortly, but I’m held up with a particular piece. I started a stylistic painting, and I want to finish it before I start something else. However, I’m not really happy with how it’s going. It’s not as clear in my mind as it used to be, and I’m not really able to see it as a complete painting just yet. Actually… looking at it now, I can see that I had splashed some droplets of blue paint on it while I was working on a larger painting I completed as a request. It’s not really worth showing though; I had an afternoon to do a 16″ x 20″ canvas (moonlit ocean subject). I also ran out of a key colour during this and the art store was fresh out, unfortunately.
