Last night I finally opened up my Etsyshop! I don't have that much in there yet but I just had to open it, I didn't want to wait any longer. Here's the link, if you have time please take a look and tell me what you think (even if it's bad, I can take it, it's the only way to learn ..... ☺).
Because of all the product descriptions and listings and getting pictures ready for the listings and trying to figure out Australia Post, I didn't get to paint as much as I would've liked this week. But I managed to finish a miniature painting and I continued on one of the canvases that I started last week.
And boy, did I struggle! It was such a long time ago that I painted the "Flora-way", and I just couldn't remember how to go about it. I kept rereading the notes I copied during the workshop, and kept looking at all the in progress shots of my previous paintings, wondering how on earth I did that.
This is what I ended up with last week:
Since Flora said: "in this fase you just have to work with what's working, even if it's only a tiny part of the canvas", I concentrated on the figure, the only thing I knew I really wanted in there. And I also discovered a big bird hovering over her, so I started working on that too.
Not sure what to do about the upside-down face with the eyes ....
So I just continued on her face ... Oh yes, and decided on another face in the upper left corner.
This is all I have at the moment. All in all I'm happy that I kept with it and forced myself to paint. In the end it went really well and then I had to stop because school was out ... Bit frustrating ;-)
In between all the Etsy-stuff I managed to work on another miniature-painting.
It looks a bit like another one I made years ago, didn't have much inspiration for faces this week. Maybe got an overdose from the 29 faces challenge, I remember I've had that every single time after the challenge.
Anyway, next week I'll start concentrating on boxes again. They sell really well in the gallery, and I've not that many left.
And I'll also keep adding to my Etsyshop the next couple of days. This weekend I'll send out my newsletter with a couponcode for my subscribers. So if you haven't already and are interested in this: you can sign up for my newsletter here.
Linking this post to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to them I forced myself to paint this week, and I'm happy I did! Go have a look at their blog and see all the other artists participating.
Thanks for paying me a visit, and thank you for all the wonderful comments I receive every week! Hope you have a beautiful Friday, and a great weekend! ♥ ♥ ♥
