I felt compelled to post something new today because I got tired of seeing the same post day after day. It's a reminder to me that I've done nothing since then. I drew the outline for a self portrait over the weekend. I've been intending to get a self portrait in my portfolio for awhile and after taking several dozen pictures, decided it was time to at least try one. This is the first stage of a large one I started this morning. So far, so good, but when I snapped the photo the reflection of the water that hadn't dried created an effect that wont be there later, so the nose actually looks better than it is at this point. But as I said, I needed to get something in a post. My intention is to create a fair amount of texture in the shadows to make the painting interesting. It's important to let the watercolor do it's thing. Just need to nudge it in the right direction.
Lately my work schedule is not conducive to painting (or sleeping for that matter), but I've found time to golf so there really is no excuse not to paint as well.
