It's been a busy summer so far what with kids out of school and a summer
track and field club (my son not me!) But I've been managing working on
some new paintings. This is what I'm currently working on. Can't wait
I fell in love with this regalia, so beautiful with intricately woven feathers into the headdress and cape. With so many of them similar in color, I had to focus on the nuances in each feather to make them come alive visually, as if they weren't already stunning to me!
Because at some point in your life, you're just going to have to learn to float!
This painting was pretty tricky, never having painted sparkly water let alone submerged/floating people before it created another one of those "what was I thinking" moments.
I think my thought process was something like this. . What a great image! I should paint that!, well, maybe not, it looks kinda hard, but then again, it would be a great painting, oh I don't know, I've never done anything like it before, well what better way to learn!, Ok, I'll try it!, I think . . . maybe after I do some easier paintings. . .oh, I'll just go for it! Ok I'll do it . . wait,
I'd better stock up on chocolate. . . yeah, chocolate will make this easier. ;0)
Ok, so I don't paint on an easel and I have several things I'm working on but I thought since I haven't updated my blog in a little while I'd let you see one of the things I'm working on. Thanks for checking in, I'll have some new paintings to show you soon! ;0)
