December paintings and a WIP
And where I am now
My journal awaits!
Using Tamara Laporte's influence here to learn how to use wax watercolor crayons.
Yummy creamy blending.
Influenced here by
I highly recommend this. Very inspiring!
And look, I did this!!
11" x 14" canvas
Then this one.
There are four woman shapes. I only started with one & found the others as I progressed.
didn't see the lady on the left until I did a cell shot. using your cell is a great way and an old technique like a minimizing glass that lets you see very small which is quite useful
so then i painted her in.
I noticed the shape far right way after I had added the flower so to give another hint; added the leaves in the lower right corner.
The final laying down shape was added under the center roses to cover the right angle of the book page. I tattooed some flourishes on her hip and thigh
The flowers were hardest. Trying to learn some new brushstroke techniques.
Then back to my journal for some fun neon color and a blending of the two artists
I adore the technique of using that black line as a way to separate space and refocus blocks of color.
Still working on this one.
These past few months have been very full of learning and trying.
I have left the entire dining room as a paint area and my daughter and I sometimes together sit for hours and just explore and paint and have fun. All the while enjoying each others company and input.
She has a marvelous eye and I value her judgement.
that's it for now; back to painting.
