remember this big huge intimidating
canvas i showed you back then?
i am still at it,
it is still a work in progress,
and it is teaching me a lot of lessons.
first i was adamant i would find a face in it,
which i eventually did,
slightly forced i admit.
(there were a few more steps before this but i deleted the photos by mistake or frustration)
i stayed at that stage for a long time, wondering what to do next.
then decided to try adding eyes
again i lived with her for a while.
i liked her but wasn't 100% convinced,
she now looked too real.
this big canvas is meant for our lounge
and i believe i need to be totally in love with the painting
to live with it.
so once again, i moved on
(it felt disrespectful to paint directly on her face and i wanted to keep her alive beneath the layers)
so i added some collage on top
and now where to from here?
i will keep you posted when i get unstuck...
