So this one is at a point where I may decide to move on to the next one. But that is probably a mistake! This is definitely not *done* but maybe it will never be. Or is that a terrible precedent?! I don’t know. Any insight appreciated.
Anyway, I think I will give this one some more time. I will post an update next week!
There will probably be a new one as well. REALLY trying to paint 5-6 days a week. Progress pics below. See how the mouth was crooked to start? On the other hand, it looked a bit like she was deliberately sort of pursing her lips. But I straightened it and it still needs some fixing up.
Thanks so much for dropping in! Thanks so much for the nice comments!
Hello to Paint Party Friday, recently having reached their seventh birthday, wow!
I am learning to paint so I can be a painter in support of our inclusive, progressive future. :)
Love it! And I always like seeing the progress of the painting. I liked her at 3/13 but that is because I am more abstract. She has more impact as she is now. Nice work! Happy PPF
She looks beautiful, Cindy! And I love these colour choices too. The hair!! I sometimes leave canvases and come back to them. Sometimes years later and then do something completely different and unexpected. Sometimes putting the painting on a back burner for a while works.
I like it a lot! I’m thinking that the hair might need more definition to complement the facial detail? I love the lower tendrils.
Wonderful portrait. Thanks for sharing the progress shots. Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie
Luv the progress pieces as well as the portrait.
Wonderful! A very different idea!
She looks stunning. Nice to see the progress of different color mixes.
Love seeing the process, and it looks fab!
Don’t give up on her yet, she’s almost there! Like Ruth said: the hair might need a bit more definition to balance it out. Loving the progress-pics!
I am impressived
I agree with the others. Don’t give up on this one. She is quite dynamic. I really love her expression.
This is so amazing…in the process you captured a myriad of expression with a strong feeling of determination and ire! Annoyed, an idea of revenge, decision made…then determination. ..just wow! Her lips were pursed..strong piece…don’t mess with this woman..,she gets mad…and she gets even too! Love it!
Wow this is really well done Cindy!
I enjoyed seeing how you came up with this beauty. Her purple skin is amazing–she looks real.
Lovely to discover your blog Cindy and thanks for visiting mine, the lovely comment and helping my daughter by subscribing.
wonderful artwork and well done and look forward to seeing more of your work
The purple is so powerful
That is the fun thing about acrylics, you can just paint over it and change it if you don’t like it. Fun.
It has been so long since I have played them.
I enjoy the purples you used for her sky and her interesting look.
Maybe you will work on her more, maybe not…. freedom is such a wonderful thing.
