where have I been?

Apologies again for a late post . I’ve been away on holiday to the beautiful city of Toledo .

Instead of a usual post , here is a video of my time away:

Just another layer

The background just needs another layer but that’s pretty much it !

There are some lessons I’ve learned from this work and I will take on board for my next painting .  For example painting the background first ! IMG_2353.JPG

I’m late …

Sorry I did not post yesterday, I want to make sure that I do actually stick to my routine of posting on Tuesdays and Thursdays !

I still haven’t decided on the background to the painting but I really want it to be finished and it’s so close to it . IMG_2313

Colour changes

I’ve been experimenting with my colour pallet to get a particular feel and the end aesthetic to the painting. The hair colour had been dulled down with an extremely pale lilac that I choose to match the background. I’ve made sure to leave a rim of blue around the edge to show that process I have specifically chosen . I don’t want the painting to be about one specific woman or identity hence the eyes and facial features have also been dulled with the soft tone of pinks and lilacs .

The hand will be my next task .

 

Progress…although not much.

Thursday is here, and progress has been a little slows as I’ve been out earning a little to ensure I can get some more art supplies! Anyway…here is another close up shot of the latest painting

I am hoping for this painting to be complete by next week! Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 18.07.30Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 18.14.02
