Getting Back in the Flow
This is my tag for this week. Its a little bit dark, I am not sure I like it. Maybe its too much black and white. The theme was recycled materials. I used parts of old calendars and scraps from a catalog, in addition to paper scraps from many sources.
I have not spent much time in the studio yet this week. I added some stamping to this page but not much else. I am stuck on where to go next with this, so I'll let it sit for awhile.
I did some beginning painting on the black sheep portrait. I thought I'd do light layers at first but that is not what happened at all. This is turning out to be quite a challenge/
This is the reference photo I am using. I am finding painting something black is not that easy. I started using black, paynes gray and white. Mixing them has not given much of a variety. The next round maybe adding some purple or blues to the mix might help. Its all a journey after all.
This week I've started exercising again. A walk on Monday and then to the gym to lift weights on Tuesday has me more tired than usual. It is hard to get back in the swing of things.
