So I just spent a week or so as the involuntary guest of the government of a small Balkan country. They were rash enough to allow me the use of a set of watercolors.
Those who haven’t much experience with painting might not know this, but watercolors are actually the hardest kind of paint to master. That free, spontaneous look they have? Takes a ton of planning, practice, and “saving whites”. Oils are a cinch by comparison. With oils, you can scrape off your mistakes before they dry.
Anyway, here’s one of my prison paintings, entitled “Half-Assed Tribute to Clyfford Still”.
The photo quality is half-assed, too. Just to keep up with the half-assed spirit of things.
