Order and Chaos

by artistvikkihastings


I painted a woman and I hated her, the way that I had applied the paint, and the compositional choice was making me ill, so, on top of her, I painted another woman, whom I loathed equally.

This happens sometimes, paintings don’t come together as naturally as they usually do, and it used to make me miserable, but I just accept and embrace it as part of the process now.
You’ve got to get it wrong to know how it feels when you’re getting it right!

SO! On this canvas, on top of two failed women, I’m having a colour party, wait until you see what it becomes, it’s going to be magnificent!
