What it has brought already is a day off from school for the kids tomorrow. I wonder how much painting I'll actually get done! I didn't get as much as I would have liked done today, because I was trying to push laundry through and make sure we did have what we needed on the off chance we get nailed with the storm. Still, I thought I'd share my progress, since it's my Halloween kittens painting!
|All sketched out|
|Moon and sky in (the sky is actually purple, I don't know why my phone wants to make it blue so badly.)|
|Started in on the pumpkins! You can see some of the iridescent paint in the reflection on the moon in this shot.|
|Finished off a good chunk of the pumpkins and the Jack-o-Lantern.|
|Finished the pumpkins! I was so excited because I was finally going to get to work on the parts I was most looking forward to!|
|Finished the fabric of the witch's hat, but I couldn't figure out what color to make the sash. Normally I'd go with orange, purple, or green but the painting was too heavy in those colors already.|
|I decided to go with a pink/maroon color, and finished off the buckle with gold and copper iridescent paint (it's a sickness, I know, but it's shiny. Who can resist shiny paint?)|
I'm looking forward to painting tomorrow, although I haven't decided if I'm starting on the boot, or the kitten snoozing on the pumpkin... I'm leaning towards the kitten!
I also need to reorganize my studio space as well as painting space. I've taken over the family room, but I've been using my art desk to paint, and I really need to be standing. It's a health-thing at this point, I just don't feel good all hunched over for hours and hours (do any of you have problems with this?) So, my plan is to organize my tiny studio room, and move my easel down to the living room. I wonder if anyone will notice.
Someday, I'll have a nice, lovely, big space to spread out!
If you're in the way of the storm, stay safe! Here's hoping it doesn't do as much damage as anticipated!
