Painting In The Morning
I should be working on something else but the studio grabbed me. I started playing with soft pastels on an old book page. I haven't worked with them on faces very often but they are a fun medium. She is kind of sour looking but maybe she is having a hard time finding the magic. Then I had this background made on tissue paper already glued down in my journal. They seemed to want to be together, add a few words and here were are, completed. This page went together easily.
I also worked on the painting again. It seems to be about my life so I added myself. I liked keeping the background as my dress. There is still so much I need to work on but I like the way it is evolving.
I forgot to post this yesterday but now I can add another pic of the painting.
I added the tree and played with the sky some more. I have worked on this three times this week. Whew, still more to do though.I have been doing my painting in the early morning. 7-9 am and I am finding it very strange because I am a not a morning person. I am finding this time to be very creative, who would of thought that, certainly not me. Have you ever tried to mix it up, create at a time when you normally wouldn't. You might be surprised at the results.
