I've been feeling a little less inspired lately.
The heat and humidity is getting to me.
I know some people will hate me for saying this
but i'm counting the days till autumn.
Started with a gray background
and blocks of lights and dark acrylics...
At this point, she kinda looks like a zombie,
but that's ok.
With portrait painting, the artist shapes the face
just as a sculptor does with his clay.
Except of course, if it's watercolor. ;-)
I find watercolor a little less forgiving
when it comes to shaping anything.
Still not sure i like her at this point...
Gave her a bit more of a smile and a softer jaw...
I haven't been happy with much of what i've created lately.
Maybe the planets aren't aligned or something.
I'm giving myself the time i need
(hence, my absence in blogland lately!)
but I am looking forward to cooler evenings
and feeling more inspired.
Where do you find inspiration?
Do you create without it?
Do you wait until it finds YOU?
Thank you all for visiting...
