What to do when paintings go wrong.

Sometimes paintings don’t go to plan. This portrait is going well, but I’ve painted her mouth a little too high, and too far over to the right. It can be scary when things go wrong, but it’s also really fantastic to be brave and step out of your comfort zone. So I took the paintbrush and simply painted right over her mouth.

Her mouth is now repainted, it looks better now, and finishing touches are being added.
Have you ever felt scared to go backwards in order to go forwards? How did it go for you?

Join us for a beginners oil painting workshop led by artist Jo Sinclair, on 22nd April at my studio in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire. If you are interested in coming please check out the link below.
