Halloween Happy hour.. it's nearly there! I think I've been chipping away at this one for at least a month (or more). I will be posting her for sale on my website in the next week or so.
As I haven't done an enormous amount of painting in my life (I found myself bound to photoshop for a number of years) I consider each painting a learning journey. I have attempted to teach myself a bit of colour theory in this one (I'm mostly self taught in all things arty). I'm not sure that I've got it down pat but I do love to see the energy that colours can radiate when you get it a little bit right!
Lotus (Sold) This is just a small oil painting. It's been hard to get a good photo, I will share this again when I have a good image for you.
This nearly didn't get painted as she misbehaved. I have decided that acrylic paints are just not my cup of tea. I repainted her in oils (background is in acrylic).
I have had 'Evolve' sitting in a corner, waiting to be finished for a few months now, this will be next on my 'to do' list!
And for something a little bit different, I would like to share a time lapse video from one of my favourite artists (I like all sorts of different genres!), Tara McPherson I just adore her use of colour (wishing I knew so much!) and it's really interesting to watch another artist at work.
