I often rummage through my watercolor drawer looking at past pieces for inspiration and just to get a sense of where I've been in order to decide where to go next. I look for clues as to where my work may be going. Lately I've seen paintings that need a lot more work. It's become a project. In all my years of painting this is the first time I've done anything like this. When working in oils I always thought that if I started reworking something it would be just as well to just do another one from scratch. As soon as you change one thing another needs "adjustment". So what makes this different? I think it's a matter of my eye "seeing" better. Just comes with putting in the hours.
