The problem with all that wonderful stuff going on (busy in the studio is always a good thing!) is that I don't get to play as much. I was casting about this morning, wishing I could play instead of work. Work was just getting muddy with the paint, it simply wasn't working. It was time to play. I remembered I was running out of time on the art swap, so I pulled out my watercolors and just had fun! This is the result:
|"Rainbow" 4x6" watercolor|
She's little. She's rainbow. And she is exactly what I wanted to do. I have mentioned in the past that figuring out skin tone with the watercolors has simply been addicting for me, because I love the way it makes the skin just glow! I've been dying to paint another face, and so... I did! And it made me happy!
A happy art day is always a good art day!
I plan on doing many more girls, as a sort of break between the more heavy duty paintings that I need to knock out. Not everything needs to be so serious and dedicated. It feels like a little mini-art-vacation, and one I desperately needed!
