A few weeks ago I was into painting dancers. I created this:
Disney princess-like painting
Though I liked some of the colours and textures, it was a little too "Disney" for my taste (not dissin' Disney, it just wasn't where my headspace was at the time).
So I played, and ended up with this:
top-down civilization, 9x12 on canvas
Seriously. There's no way I could've predicted that when I laid the first brushstrokes to the top one.
I love making art. It keeps me on my toes.
