Mixed Feelings

Sometimes as an artist I create stuff I'm not so sure about.  Each composition is a journey, and at the end of the trip I may not know why I started in the first place.  That's why I usually try to make the trips short, and create the artwork as fast as I can.  In this way I keep my motivation fresh.  But sometimes a composition takes more than one stint to finish.  And at the end, I wonder what I was thinking when I thought it up.  But there is no turning back, I must finish it.

Above is exactly one of those images.  I was experimenting with texture, but I might have gone over board.  In any case, I call it the Duelist.

Watercolor and ink on 300lb WC paper.


Enjoy!
