It Is Not Mine
It is not mine. I mean, it is my hand and my watercolors, and my brushes. But I do not recognise the result. It is my teachers'. My heart is cold when I look at it. I do not see watercolor transparency. It is oil effects all over the place. And the colors are too intensive for my feeling of the color. And the edges are too sharp for my feeling of shape.
And here the questions arrive. Should I find another teacher? Or is it normal in learning, when you do as if you are a hand of the teacher? Or maybe I am too old and stubborn to learn? And how to keep my individual style (let's assume I have some:-)) and opinion while the authority of my teacher will grow?
I will keep going. I will try to work in my line, taking bits of teachers' one.
But this sketch is still not mine :-))
