I had a finishing off day today. This page was almost done, just a few finer details. I like the hair and love the quote and the coloured background.. so this is going to find its way onto a canvas at some point in the future. In case you cannot make out the writing it says "I am one of those people who just cant help getting a kick out of life, even when its a kick in the teeth" by Polly Adler. This really made me smile.
Also finished off this page today in my smaller dylusions journal - I do prefer to work on a larger scale as a rule but the variety is often a good thing I find.
I do like the faces on these two, plenty of practice is always a good thing. I was going to show the progress I am making on the HUGE canvas, but alas I forgot to resize the photo I took so that will have to wait for another time - reading Flora Bowley's book I got a new tip on the paints I was using that were not really flowing as I had hoped, so I did a new layer or two today with different paints and had much better progress. So much so that I began another canvas too, this one is 20" x 16" so not as big, but enough for me.
Many of my new pals in the Art101 group find the free painting difficult to do.. I totally love it, I feel I was just born to do this, shame I didnt discover it over 40 years ago really, life would have been a lot different. I am far happier now than I have been in a very long time and I do believe it shows in the art works I am producing. Joy really does show on a page...
