Hello Kittens and Happy Paint Party Friday! There's been a whole lotta paintificating going on at HerSpeak HQ. Let's get to the goods! I've made a bit of progress on "Skully"--but not as much as I'd hoped. The amount of white I used in this piece mixed with the super high humidity means it's taking eons to dry. (For those of you who aren't familiar with oil paints, they can take weeks to dry, making layering difficult.)
I am a bit stuck on this piece--do I add a second layer of pattern in the foreground? Go gonzo with the head dress? What do you think? Help me brainstorm!
I also began working back into a piece I abandoned a while back. It began as an in-class one-session painting and was never developed fully. Now it's back with a vengeance! Working out proportional problems, adding color, fine tuning feathers and bringing in some bones! (You can see the beginnings of a cat skull on the bottom right.) I'm dying to work on that hot pink tiger...
Can't wait to see all of your creations! Keep kickin' em out!
