The best laid plans and all that! I really can’t believe how fast the year is once again whizzing by. I know I haven’t been able to spend a lot of time with my art, but seriously… the first quarter of the year almost over? Yikes!
I am still working on my acrylic painting, although it has come a long way since I posted the work in progress pic back in …gulp..January. In the pic below you can see how far I have gotten and those things that look like white blobs are in fact sequins that I decided to stick on for fun. You will also notice a huge change in the colour scheme as I decided to go off in a different direction.
So what is left to do on this one? Well, I want to tidy up the lips a bit to give them a bit of definition, add some lace/gauze frills around the neck area and perhaps some kind of simple design on the mask itself – not sure about that yet. Then I think I will call it done.
As I currently have nowhere to keep my art in progress, this one is actually hanging on the wall already, which is quite handy. As they say, you just have to make do with what you have and until I get back to having a dedicated room for all my art stuff, then the living room wall is the place to hang my work until it is actually finished. I say ‘all my art stuff’ tongue in cheek of course as I am having to start over with a lot of it.
So, enjoy this update, and thank you for taking the time to do so. I do have another piece in the works as there is a spot above the fireplace here that needs something and for me, that is going to be my own copy of one of Rosina Wachtmeisters works. I absolutely love her work and doing my own is the next best thing to owning a framed print! Hopefully I won’t take as long to get that one going!
