I’m not spending a lot of time daily on painting so the progress on this painting is slow.
Working on the details of the face now and trying as hard as I can to understand the complex colors I see.
The super simple block-in for the whole painting is done. Tomorrow I’ll get back to details.
The best way to figure out a color is to also figure out the colors next to it.
I worked a bit more on the skin color trying to get a base to work from.
First layer on the face is close to finished and I’m moving outward into the background and down the body.
I’ve started painting and I’ve started with detail right away.
For this post and the next few posts I’m going to keep the text very short.
After some serious deliberation on my second morning walk I’ve come to a conclusion.
I spent most of my time today agonizing over subject matter and searching for photos.
After lots of thought I’ve figured out the motive that I want to communicate. Although…
Still fussing with the background.
Back to Vulnerability Four and I’m experimenting with the background today.
I’ve taken a lot of chances in this painting and pushed a lot of boundaries.
I was hoping to finish this painting today but I think it will take a couple more days of work.
I slept better last night and today I entered the flow state.
Sleep has been a challenge lately and my brain wasn’t up to the challenge today.
Much of the same today.
I’m certain now that this is how I want to paint moving forward.
I moved up to the hair of the figure. Working on detail and interest.
More of the same but the images don’t show it.
Stroke after stroke I keep adjusting and re-adjusting the subtle colors of the skin.
I’m back to working on Vulnerability Three and I have a plan to infuse some elegance into the painting.
This layer for Vulnerability Four is done. I’ll let it dry for a few days now.
I’m not sure if I need to write anything about thing painting today.
I’m moving slow on CreateQuest development and slow on this painting.
Another one hour session on this painting and lots more hours on CreateQuest.
Another relaxing day on this painting. I focused on his hair, arm and hand.
I had a wonderfully relaxing painting session today after lots of dev work on CreateQuest.
My in-laws flew back home last night after a wonderful visit for a week.
I spent most of my time today signing other paintings and little time on this painting.
I put in a lot of time and effort on this painting today and accomplished a lot.
I’m experimenting with texture on this painting.
I’ve moved on to the next painting, beginning the second layer of paint.
I’ve finished Vulnerability Two this morning and signed it.
I’ve very close to finishing this painting and I’m having a wonderful time of it.
As a test I blew up my PM routine in favor of visiting with family.
Another quick post today as I rock my AM and get as much art time in as I can.
I had a wonderful morning and I’m looking forward to visiting with family.
A wonderful and busy Sunday. Mostly CreateQuest recording and more blackberry picking.
A super productive CreateQuest and art day, plus a house cleaning workout.
The paintings are drying so slow that I need to start a new painting. Oh no!
A day full of art and errands.
I started a new painting as I wait for the last one to dry.
I went a bit crazy today on the Vulnerability Two painting and I’m loving it!
Vulnerability One is finished. I put the finishing touches on it today and signed it.
After listening to only half of Daring Greatly by Brene Brown I’m changing the name of these paintings.
After a super productive and awesome meeting with Josh about CreateQuest I continued my day of art making.
