my main subject in this painting will be a girl inside the largest lily and i have been having some anxiety over painting her. today i found a pose i liked in croquis cafe and did a quick sketch in my sketchbook, then threw caution to the wind and started painting right on the canvas. i knew that any wrong turns with the brush can easily be painted over or wiped away with a spritz of water and paper towel, so i just did it. it took a little bit of time to get the position right with legs and arms, and i'm letting her rest while i rest myself.
getting the pose
she's just a thought and a brushstroke away from what she will become, i have things to fix and fill in, but i'm already thrilled with her!
