White Aster 11 x 14 Inch Oil Painting

This painting took me a full painting scrape before I had something I was happy with.  I learned that if I don’t like what I am doing, scrape it off and start again rather than finishing the painting and trying to make it work.  In my case, I finished the painting and hated it.  I have a thing where I don’t destroy things right away. In this case, I had my mom look at it and got the blessing and encouragement to scrape it off and start again.  I was bummed about the wasted hours but I am glad I scraped it off.  I am happy with the final results of the second try.

  1. Nice recovery Dawn. Those were not “wasted hours” – they were valuable hours of painting experience – each minute will come back and help you in a myriad ways in each future painting.

    1. Thank you Shawn. Oh those acrylics. That is unfortunate. Luckily this one in oils was in it’s first 24 hours so scraping took like 30 seconds…and good as a blank canvas!
