Now that the snow if over with, we're getting pummeled with rain. Go figure.
I was in my studio today for four hours giving a little love to my larger piece for my March show. I'd planned on getting two smaller works sketched out, but the painting below was going well and I didn't want to stop and interrupt my creative juju.
Spending three hours on clouds may seem a little silly, but it takes a heck of a long time to make them look somewhat natural (if you are me). In other words, making something look light and billowy takes heavy handed paint and much blending. I use my fingers because brushes are often too harsh on the paint....they leave brush marks and I wanted a smoother look.
Anyhow, I won't write a book today. One of my New Year's Resolutions is to be more brief (even if it's considerably less fun on my end :)
I'll be working on this piece again on Wednesday. Thanks for looking!
