So this is the next painting I'm working on. I thought I would do a characture of my cat but this came out of me instead. Deb was working on a princes that turned into a snow queen. Check it out on her blog..."it's all good". Again we were on a similar wave length....totally different executions.
I was teetering on whether to make it a fall color scheme or a winter one. But I wanted to at least have it drawn out, and burned into the wood with the skin tone and the eye color on the board. So when we got together to paint we would be close to the same stage. Only to find she was already nearing completion by the time I made it over to her house this weekend to paint. That's OK she was already on to her next creation. Which is stunning by the way.
I knew I wanted to use patterned paper for her coat dress. But I neglected to bring some paper. I guess I thought I could add it later. But once I was there sitting down to do it. I found it pivotal to have it. So I would know what background colors I should use.
So Deb let me shop for paper in her stash. She has lots and lots of yummy paper. I found the above and it has set the color tone for the whole painting. I plan on using some puff paint for the faux fur collar. I also had to borrow her snow flake stamp set mine didn't make it in to my bag. So you see how far I am..... and you see I have a ways to go.
