Long story, that I wont get all into right now. However, I'll promise to come back to it and explain actually what the idea is/was.
None the less, it required a few paintings of puffins that I needed to spawn off. I did one a while back and ended up painting over it. I even painted over it upside down! It was absolutely horrible, and no, you nor anyone else will ever see it. I won't even tell you what I painted over it, just to make sure someone would have a hard time finding it via blacklight. I was just not 100% into the project, and I needed to be to produce better work. I learned that being at 90%, is a dangerous thing. You either have to CARE, or not at all. That middle ground forces the brush to do odd things.
So, I stopped caring. Painting a few paintings/studies that I enjoyed. Very quick.
