|"Alice" 9x12x1, Acrylic on stretched canvas (original sold, prints available)|
I wasn't sure I was going to at one point, given that I had sort of lost interest. I'm not sure why. Figuring out that I wanted to hang pocket watches all over the tree made a difference though. Again, not sure why. I've always been fascinated with clocks, and I'm sure that had something to do with it.
Some parts went fast, others slowly, and in my head I was already well onto the next painting. The next one up will absolutely be the Queen of Hearts. I have this image of her... she might be a bit racy though, so we'll see how that one develops.
However, until then I'm going to work on the two little watercolors (dragon and unicorn) that I'm doing a time-lapse video on, and then on to the big watercolor with the unicorn and fairy. I'm hoping those go much faster. This painting took entirely too long.
More and more, I've been contemplating the Cintiqs. The smoothness of the finish you get with digital is just not something I seem to be able to pull off in traditional mediums. I wish there was a master's class that taught that, because I would sign right up!
It's very, very hot here. It got into the 90's today with high humidity, with worse expected tomorrow. I'm wishing I had A/C right now! Especially since I have to bake a birthday cake for my daughter's party. She turns 15 this weekend. I can't believe it!
