Started another painting… this one inspired by a friend’s Facebook photo. She is called Artemis. Funny thing, this is the first “white” person I’ve ever painted. All previous portraits have been of Native Americans. Artemis has porcelain skin with a slight rosy cast (blue in the shadows), brilliant dark blue eyes and dark, dark brownish black hair. I enjoy doing portraits, although they aren’t usually very realistic in appearance. Need more practice with the brushwork or a steadier hand. I might explore this theme a bit more getting more abstract a la Modigliani.
The nice thing about my “schedule” I can do as much or as little painting / drawing as I want. What a treat!
Have other paintings and drawings in mind. The creative juices are flowing and it doesn’t matter if other folks do or don’t like what comes out. I’m enjoying exploring with paint…
