SO…YEAH I FINALLY FINISHED THIS CRAPPY SKETCH OF LA GUERRE. WON’T BE SURPRISED IF I HAVE NIGHTMARES TONIGHT. THIS PAINTING JUST MAKES ME FEEL SO SO UNCOMFORTABLE. SO RIGHT AFTERWARDS I DREW THREE OF MY PERSONAL FAVOURITES! YEAH…IT’S PROBABLY KIND OF CREEPY THAT I LOVE LA JEUNE FILLE ET LA MORT SO MUCH. I MEAN IT’S MOSTLY BECAUSE I PRETTY MUCH LIKE MARIANNE’S VERSION OF THE DEATH…FINE.

THERE YOU ARE…OKAY SOME OF THESE ARE STILL REALLY CRAPPY. + YEAH CON’S TOO CUTE I CAN’T DRAW HIM AS CUTE AS HE ACTUALLY IS. + FOR THE FIRST TIME OF MY LIFE I GUESS THAT I KNOW WHAT ‘HATING A PAINTING’ FEELS LIKE…I REALLY, REALLY DON’T LIKE LA GUERRE. SERIOUSLY I DON’T LIKE IT. DON’T KNOW WHY BUT EVERY TIME I SEE IT I FEEL SO UNCOMFORTABLE! OF COURSE I’M AWARE THAT HENRI ROUSSEAU IS GREAT + I KNOW HE’S GOT A REALLY CREATIVE WAY OF SEEING THINGS + EXPRESSING THEM, BUT I JUST DON’T LIKE IT. IT’S NOT EVEN LIKE SOMETIMES I FIND SOME CUBIST WORKS WEIRD. JUST…WHEN YOU TRY TO DO A SKETCH OF A PAINTING BUT IT’S TAKING YOU AGES + YOU STILL DO NOT FINISH IT, YOU KNOW YOU DON’T LIKE IT. IT’S LIKE REMEMBERING LINES [QUOTING ANDREW SCOTT]: IF YOU CAN’T REMEMBER A LINE, IT MEANS YOU DON’T WANNA SAY IT.
