I was hoping to have this one finished before today, but she has me a little stumped.
I haven't painted a painting that will eventually end up in my shop for a while, but this one came to me during a morning yoga session. (I tell ya - they strike everywhere.)
So instead of a finished painting today, here are some of the work in progress shots.
I usually start with a back ground, but this time I wanted to do something different, however at this stage I wasn't sure what that was going to be, so I went with the face.
I love painting faces, but my absolute favourite place to paint is the eyes.
Once I have the eyes finished, I usually know where my painting is going. And, okay, I know this sounds a little... well...out there,They usually tell me who the girl is, what her story is.
Not this time however. I am sure we will get there in the end.
So I loved the water colour play I did last week + have been inspired by Carla Sonheim's Life Book Lesson so I wanted to try something new for the back ground.
So this is where I am at the moment. Slightly stymied, I am hoping that inspiration will strike over the weekend, I would love to share the final painting with you next week.
What do you do when you are not sure about the direction of your art work? Do you take time away from it, or do you push through? I would love to hear how you create!
Have a fabulous weekend.
