Hope 1 & 2

When I started this series, I got into my stride. 

I had painted a few beautiful Planets last year. But after a failed batch earlier this summer (which I will not share with the world, you'll be happy to know - oops, I just realise I DID post some of these!), I was anxious about tackling another Planet series. Was I doomed to repeating the same mistakes over and over? How had I managed to create such beauties a year ago, but could only produce mud this year? Was I completely talentless? Was there any point in even trying?

But once I decided on a good colour scheme, and had a little pep talk with myself, there was no stopping me. 

Some are more three-dimensional than others, but by and large, I painted fairly thin layers of colour, careful to register the print before applying other layers. 

So, if there is hope for me, there is Hope for the World!
