Intimidation

by Julie Beck of Julie Beck: Original Paintings

Do you ever find yourself intimidated by a project you started? Or are hesitant to start it due to intimidation?

2 years ago I started a painting in hopes that I could finish it in time for my parents swanky art party that a lot of art people would be at. That week I also broke my ankle playing roller derby. I only had 2 sessions on the painting but I haven't touched it since.

I feel like the size thing is intimidating. It just stares at me in my studio telling me I'm too chicken to pick it up again. So last night, I said "ENOUGH!" and put some more paint on it. The background is by far the hardest since I don't use large brushes. I am actually using a house painting brush to get in all the color at once (love that acrylics dry so fast, but in this case it's a bad thing!)

To give you an idea of scale...this is what size I normally paint at:

So let's keep our fingers crossed that I can keep up the momentum on this!
