i have felt so inspired by kelly rae's book - see my review here - that i decided to have fun with layers....and it WAS fun! i haven't finished this one yet but i'm pleased with how it's coming along so far. i am using a pic of my daughter as my reference image and i've managed to achieve a likeness which i'm quite happy about considering i sketched her straight onto the canvas freehand....not to mention the fact that i don't do people well at all. still more to do to her though as well as adding a few other elements.
after doing the quiz in the last post, and it saying that i needed more purple in my life, i decided to use purple in this painting. purple is one of my favourite colours and i surprised myself when the quiz drew my attention to the fact that i really don't have much purple in my life at all. i have actually been saying to the kids for months now that i've been thinking about changing the lounge room colour scheme to a blue/green/purple colour combo. i LOVE these colours together! so, maybe the lounge room will get some attention in the not too distant future.
i won't get any painting done today as mum and dad are coming for lunch and a games afternoon so i'll be busy cooking in the morning.
i hope the rest of you are enjoying a beautiful weekend!
