Process: You can't go back the way you came

The time has come for me to try and figure out how to paint as opposed to colour in large sections of canvas.
As this post suggests, I have no idea what I'm doing ever... but none-the-less, here's how I'm doing it.
At this point my parents got awkward about the really shit thing I was making.
"They're... nice... colours."
Mum teaches kinder kids, so she knows how to compliment things that represent a similar skill-level.

That weird jaundiced colour was caused by it being night-time when I got done, and there was a bit of a wet paint slick whacking shit out up the top.

But I like her enough.
It's my first painting in ages.
