This weekend I worked on washes and mixing. The results were 50/50 (at best,) but I know that ratio will improve with time.
Pretty happy with this one, although the overwhelming presence of straight lines had me cursing my shaky hands.
The source was a screen capture from Live's 'Turn My Head' video, which is itself based upon the paintings of John Register. I admire the way he captures everyday moments with near photographic precision, and with such a feeling of solitude. I have been a big fan of what work of his I have been able to find since seeing this video years ago.
So that's about it - no masterpieces yet, but the practice continues. Looking back on the learning process for percussion, I think it was a good seven years before I was actually good. With cooking, it was also a learning curve measured in years. Maybe I will be good at this by the time I'm thirty. Maybe forty. Maybe never. I'm enjoying it though, the frustration is minimal, and sharing the experience with Elle is phenomenal. I'm not in any hurry.
