last minute project before heading off to the desert, gifts to give ~
paint and paper coming with, hopefully august’s piece of art work will finally come together
Is it too late to start over? Is there a such thing as actually “starting over” or are we always informed by the process of unfinished business, abandoned projects, where we have failed? I’m not really sure. But I started drying some flowers and leaves from my garden. Taking something beautiful, full of color, full of life and trying to preserve it, trying to hang onto that moment of witnessing beauty. But is it possible to truly capture a moment?
However, this is the last week of August and I have 2 more of these to go. Yikes! This is concerning.
Skin tone. What a battle. I got her face to a good place at least 3 times throughout the painting process and then colors got muddled, so I had to paint over it. Just a few tweaks and I need to leave it alone. Then I will tackle the hair.
I’m seeing some magenta and hibiscus and dark skin tones in my next one.
