Haven’t Gouged My Eyes Out…Yet

Progress has been slow on my Peacock but I’m steady going at it. This will definitely take some time but I have other small ACEO projects lined up to keep some variety going. I haven’t gouged my eyes out with my drawing pens yet so I guess that’s a good sign that things are going well. You would think that by now I would have built up a resistance to the feeling of monotony that comes with pointillism work but the truth is, it never really goes away. There’s always some point where you feel like you hate the piece but you work through it as always. You get used to it and accept that it’s just part of the process. 😊

  1. It is looking beautiful!
    I do get what you say. Once I get past a certain point I just eant a piece out of the way so I can start something new that excites me again. Adding continuous extra layers of the same colour, usually green in botanical work, saps my enthusiasm quickly!

    1. I include botanicals into my work often and whenever I do pointillism work in color, green is that one color that takes so much work to build up. I’m always running out of green pens. But I understand what you mean. Larger works, particularly larger works that are in color, completely exhaust me.
