Now that we’re settled in our new residence, I lastly have been portray once more. For years I had been portray on small items of paper from our eating room desk — I didn’t really feel I had sufficient area so as to add an easel and bigger canvases into the combination. However now I’ve the area for a portray space for myself in my residence workplace and have been portray, incessantly, for the previous few months — nights, weekends, over winter break — portray, portray, portray.
I get lots of pleasure from portray my family members, imagined individuals and scenes, and self-portraits too. Attempting to get a very good likeness, but in addition engaged on capturing the spirit of the individual. That’s the toughest half actually. A few of these work I’m very pleased with, others I can barely take a look at and preserve hidden away in my closet, however with every new portray that I do, I study one thing new and am loving the method so, so a lot.
This one is a “mixed-media” piece. I used wire for my curls. Pun supposed 😉
My daughter, Ida, has been within the combine too, getting her portray in whereas listening to stand-up comedy! It’s been a terrific bonding exercise for her and I.
And this certainly one of Ida could also be my favourite…
Hope ya’ll are having fun with your winder to date!
