Sometimes I sketch a few pieces at a time so I will have something to paint over the next few days. And I have to be honest. I become a nervous wreck when I paint. My hand begins to tremble and all kinds of thoughts rush through my head - the colour is wrong, I will make a huge messy splotch, bla, bla, bla. So I hold my breath and take a moment before laying on the paint. And when I do, it feels like watching a horror movie between my fingers!
It always surprises me when all goes well which, I guess, means it usually doesn't :) But that's the process.
