This is definitely the hardest course for me because I am so attached to the outcome that starting without clear direction is enormously fear inducing. Logically I know this is silly, and it is just paint, but the idea that i could *gasp* make a bad painting fills me with dread. So I spent a lot of time trying to work my way up to painting by over complicating the swatching task.
For the final task I decided to try a Kandinski inspired fruits platter. I found even with the more spur of the moment pieces that it helps with have an idea or concept or even emotion to follow (for example i decided to go with pisces for the blue piece).
