Acrylic Painting: Wistful w/ Process Pics

Here’s one of the paintings I made for the Big 500 art show I mentioned last week.  Thought I’d include a few process pics too.

I love looking at process images.  I confess that I never read the descriptions of the process when artists include them.  I just like to look at the  pictures for inspiration and see just how much a painting can change from beginning to end.  I enjoy seeing how painters (especially acrylic painters)  handle the awkward phase of the painting,  work through it and make it a success. I suppose I don’t read descriptions because when I’m painting I like to sort of my own problems.  Part of what makes painting fun is working through some muddle I’ve gotten myself into.

When you look at artist’s Do you like to read about the process or do the photos stand alone?
