A while back I started painting and I experienced something I've never experienced before.
I bought a pack of basic oil paint about a week prior and one day I decided to start on a larger canvas, by painting the bottom layer - a simple grey tone. I set everything up on the floor, put some music on, poured me a glass of red wine (that's a key ingredient when creating grand art) and started. I was just going to put a quick layer of paint so that it would dry and be prepared for the main motif sometime during the next few days.
It didn't play out as planned.
