i can see the finish line to this painting, and it's coming in exciting ways. today i was inspired to cover a lot of the background with a transparent yellow. that was scary, but i knew if i didn't like the result i could spray it with water and wipe it away.
i also worked her hair again, making this girl one of the most changed paintings, hair-wise, as i am!
here she was yesterday...
and after some good changes...
i have included a large drop at the top, symbolizing many things in my life. i knew this symbol would be included somewhere in this painting, but had no clue it would be so prominent. i like how it helps move the eye around the canvas.
i can see where i will work tomorrow, a small change, and i will soon bring her upstairs to sit with me a while. she may give me more whispers, or she may silently speak of her completion.
i'm so happy with her! hopefully i can get a bright, calm day to get good photos of her to put her in the shop in the near future.
