|Sisters - Face 8|
Finished! Face no 8. I counted one of the sisters as my first face in the 29 faces in February challenge at Ayala's. So I am counting the second face as my 8th. When I posted originally I wasn't sure about the colour scheme, I have changed it a bit, taken away some of the green and added more blue/purple. Also at the time I wasn't sure if I wanted them to look so sad and anxious. I mediated on that and decided to go with it, as it is an anxious time for my sister and I as our Mum has severe Alzheimer's and it is hard to deal with. So, I think this is finished for the time being. When I find that I am starting to overwork the faces I know it is time to stop!
I am on a roll I also finished the hills painting I started about 2 weeks ago.
|Hills - Tararuas|
I am very pleased with it. I find that I am looking at the hills every day now and getting inspiration. I am not going to start another landscape oil yet as this month I am concentrating on Faces for the challenge. But, I am taking my sketchbook out with me and my trusty Windsor and Newton watercolour travel box with me when I go on my daily walk to the local nature reserve. Here are two sketches I did this week.
I like the abstract quality, as it allows me to play around with colour combinations.
Happy PPF everybody.
