She left a trail of petals behind her – Day 5
November 5th, 2007
This is about 10"x 15" with acrylic and ink on watercolor paper. When I sat down to make some art, I was sketching in my moleskin journal and drew a teeny tiny sketch of what this would become. I think I want to add a sort of pattern to the dress, but it's late, so maybe another day. Here's a close up of her face:
In my original sketch, I thought of her as a dancer, so that would probably explain her long neck and ballerina look. I love drawing the female figure. I love the long lines and graceful curves. Much like drawing trees for me, another of my favorite subjects, as you may have noticed.
While waiting for the water on this one to dry, I still had leftover paint and didn't want to let it dry up unused, so I grabbed a page of an old recipe book (same one I used in the Alice piece) and just started painting with the two colors I had left, blue and purple. Cute, eh?
I had lots that I wanted to write about tonight, but I want to post this before midnight. My camera ran out of batteries, hence the late posting. Perhaps I'll write more later. Toodaloo for now!
