i bit the bullet, day 28

i'm so proud of myself today!

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!

until later,
