A sketch of Fealing Lin that I did in my handprint sketchbook in Boone last month.
A month ago already. 😪 I do LOVE Boone classes at Cheap Joes and hanging out with Mike Alan and Fealing. That equals a great week.
The painting. It could use a few more darks but quitting for now. After all it is in my sketchbook.
Today I decided to work on this train wreck painting of my dear granddaughter Livie.
I had tried to lift it out when I screwed it up with too much green but that’s easier said that done when it’s hot press.
All I can say is EEKKKK.
TOO dark. And all those odd shaped drips are where the paper is absorbing paint due to the loss of its surface when I was lifting.
As Fealing says I blame the paper for a bad painting. Cant possibly be moi!!
In this process I also lost the drawing. Can’t see it at all.
Good news is there’s another side of the paper Fabriano 300 # hot press. I can have a do over or just go with a new pic of her with better lighting aka shadows and highlights.
Margaret who just took Zoe on a long walk and is hot and tired. I thought we were getting the arctic chill this weekend but it’s almost 70 outside. 😳 Xoxoxox
