You won't see much difference between the 2 paintings at the moment. I'll start with the first one.
This is what I started with. I had a hard time remembering how to go about it. The last 3 paintings I made were from sketches in my sketchbook. These are Flora-paintings, meaning I am going to let the painting decide what goes on there. I doodled a bit on there, but these doodles don't mean anything in this stage, they can turn into something completely different. I'm turning my canvas all the time, so I loose track of what I've doodled before. Which is as it should be. Although I must admit I'm getting rather attached to the bird and the fish saying hello to each other.... They might stay ☺.
Still no idea where I'm going with this one. I see animals everywhere, so I might make a painting without humans this time. Who knows ... I have a whole week to look at it and think about it.
This is the second painting I tackled yesterday:
Just kept making marks on there, painting around the lines and shapes:
And on this one I saw faces everywhere. You might notice that I'd already drawn a face with eyes, but then I turned the canvas and saw another figure emerge. So I had to draw her too...
I also finished another miniature painting (10x10cm - 4"x4"). Love making these!
This will be available in my Etsy-shop as soon as I open it. And yes, I know I said I was going to open it this week. Alas,yesterday and today (I always wait until the last minute, very bad habit of mine ....) I really struggled with writing my shop policies and the descriptions of the items I want to sell. And taking some good photos to go along with it turned out to be much harder than I'd expected, especially with the really dark weather we've been having here this week. So in the end, I decided to cut myself some slack and open it some time next week.
By the end of the week, when the shop is open, I'll send a newsletter to my newsletter-subscribers, with a coupon-code inside. So if you want to take advantage of that, better hurry and sign up for my newsletter here. And don't worry, I will only send one newsletter a month, I won't spam your inbox ☺
Well, thanks for visiting, and for commenting. I love hearing your thoughts about what I'm doing and creating! I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday, go have a look at their blog to see all the participants. Lots of eye-candy everywhere!
