Thursday, Thursday! Time to share my Palette & Paint!
All the explanation marks are because I'm excited! I've been painting! It's a true pleasure to be able to dedicate so much time to my art. I'm passionate about creating beautiful paintings that brighten days and make people ponder and smile. I feel extremely lucky to be able to do what I enjoy as my full-time job.
So, what have I been painting you may ask? I've worked a bit more on 'He Loves Me', her hands and dress are taking shape, getting more form and more paint. Oh and I gave her some 'modesty' by covering up her cleavage, I like it better like this. I'll need to tone down and form the pink top, though.
Here's what my palette looks like at the moment:
Isn't oil paint LUSH?
Also last night I had a sudden brain wave about what I was going to put in the background of 'Valentine and Her Cat', you know how I was not quite sure about the pink? Can you guess from the photo below what I'm thinking?
This is going to be so fun! I can't wait to get into it, I'll have to wait for the yellow layer of oil paint to dry before I can do any more. It's a good thing I'm using an absorbent ground with fast drying mediums, fingers cross I can start on it tomorrow afternoon, I'm very keen to paint the background, can you tell?
Did you notice my Happy Holidays banner at the top of my blog, it's courtesy of Geri from My Heart Art. If you pop on over to her blog you will find the HTML code and instructions to put one on your own blog. Geri is also running a giveaway on her blog, how generous is she? If you'd like to be in the draw head on over to this post and find out more.
