I find it very important to understand my own mood and pick what I want to paint accordingly.
Some days I’m so focused I can paint anything than other days I either don’t have the energy, time or I’m just not in the right mindset to tackle something complex. The good thing about this really complex painting is that I have a multitude of areas I can work on that fit whatever mood I have on any given day.
Today I worked on a somewhat simple area, the back wall, and used it to just lose myself in the texture. Not too much focus, not a lot of brain power but still working.
