I couldn't figure out how to update the original post to show the changes. I still might add some animals of some kind but I'm nervous because I'm not that confident I won't mess up what I have so far. Thanks again for the feedback before, still open to more.
I am.not a painter. I have been very depressed and I am.about to see a new thearpist she thought it may be a good idea to express in writing or painting. I did not feel like writing so I thought maybe I could do painting. Child loss is complicated, disgusting feeling. death is natural but dying before your child is unnatural feeling, colorful because children are colorful but losing my son made the colors mesh together forming shapes and unnatural blends. so This is the first painting. I dont know if she will get it
This is my first time doing a reflection painting
I hired painters and the wall was smooth before. Now there are few spots that have this sandpaper like texture. What could be causing it and how is it fixed?
