Friday Again




This is the only piece of art I have completed this week. Have been busy in the garden and with my illustrating commissions. I have been pondering whether to do the 29 faces this September, it will be a busy month and I am not sure that I can allocate the time needed. I have a soft spot for it, as it was the first challenge I ever took part in. I really loved doing the lovely above, and have come to the conclusion that I will commit to it, but do one actual face a week but show the daily progression of the painting. The girl above took me 5 days (it is in acrylic), spending about ½ to 1 hour each time. My goal will be to do a series of girls on canvas in acrylics using colour (bright colours) with unusual combinations. The girl above will be the first. They will all be the same size canvas, as they fit into one of the standard size NZ Post cardboard boxes for posting. (I am seriously considering opening an etsy shop sometime soon.) Anyways this girl has not a name yet, I keep thinking of 'hopeful' or spring nymph?

Have a great week every body and happy Paint Party Friday!

  12. Hopeful or Hope? Anyway, she is gorgeous. I am trying to do the 29 faces too. The hard part for me is to understand how to post, since it is different from any other challenge.

  16. Beautiful color combination, Sharon. I'm going to try for 29 faces again - I think your idea of one per week is brilliant. There is not right or wrong way to do the challenge. If that is the time you have, that's a perfect goal.
