I am looking forward to skipping the disgusted part of this process, and am actually doing much better about that. Painting every day takes the pressure off making a good one, somewhat, because you have another shot right away. But this idea of shimmering white, rather than a flat plane of white - this is something I see in other's work, but do not see when I look at the set up.
I think maybe experimenting with light bulbs might be a beginning. I know I can invent it, or imagine it, but first I want to see it.
