I've had a really frustrating week in the studio, trying to finish an acrylic painting... and NOT managing it!! (Fill in imprecation of your choice here.) I almost never give up on a painting, but this one may HAVE to go. Ick.
In the meantime, I've had some relief and fun in wielding pen and watercolor brush, working quickly, instead of obsessing as I've done with the acrylic piece.
In this sketch of my husband, I painted it on site, unlike the sketches in the previous post, where I looked hard and thought about color on site, but painted later. I was interested to see that there's not much difference in overall effect. Maybe a few more nods to light and shadow, but that's all. Do you agree?
Here's another face for my 101 Faces project---playing around with dip pens and Higgins russet ink, drawing loosely and quickly. I'm enjoying this project SO MUCH more this year than last. I feel freer and happier with this imagery, who knows why.
And, yes, here's that kitchen sink .
This weekend, probably on Sunday, I plan to post the answer to the Mystery Theme riddle! Could be Monday, but I think Sunday. See you then!
