WIP – after hours

I am determined to finish this. And I am determined to be a painter.

I will complete this one, even if the background drives me mad. The original background didn’t work, but I want to keep this picture full of brighter colours.

I need to work a lot more on painting. I like painting a lot, but I haven’t seen so much of it recently, and now we have a rather fragile relationship. Pulled from a memory, a couple of anatomy references, a couple of different photos of the same model and a lot of imagination. I think I should do a speedpaint from a photo reference next.

One of the things I love about painting is breaking through a plateau on a particular piece and realising that one little thing you need to do to make things work.

One of my friends is leaving Australia tomorrow. I got her a little sketchbook from Typo and drew something in the front cover.

I also baked a bunch of cupcakes for her party, but photos of those will have to wait until my camera is charged up again. Then I can post the full set of the new set of Sweet ACEOs too!
