I learned some new TRICKS!
I took Suzi Blu's Petite Doll class... my theory of art is that there is always always always something new to learn! Suzi's class was a BLAST and I learned a lot of really COOL new stuff! I started using some different paints that lend themselves to layering more and also got the beeswax out again! Here's one of the "layered" paintings:
I really believe this is my medium!!! I'm not great at moving the paint around in one layer and blending in one layer. I tend to overwork things and then you get the dreaded MUD! Laying is right up my alley as I do not have a hugely long attention span, so I can do one thing and the next thing is soon to come. The exception to this is that I seem to spend a huge amount of time on the face shading. I like it perfect, which I wish I could somehow STOP that as I think sometimes it's too perfect and not enough CHARACTER, kwim? I struggle to sort of "let go" when working on the face. Maybe I should just accept this.
Anyway, thanks for reading this far... here's a cute little video that made my heart sorta flutter!
Thanks for stopping by!
