When I had my first Exhibition in London many years ago I was painting 3 paintings a week. I had too to keep up with the demand. I would often get up at 6 in the morning to start work before everyone else came down for breakfast. I probably do 1 good one week now.
What I learnt from this intense activity is that it pays to chip away or start paintings behind the scenes, especially the ones that prove difficult. I started a new oil with this in mind today about half past four. I was going to work till 5 today but that half an hour can be Golden.
This is an old canvas that i have gone over and this is the start.
