Feeling Blue

.....or perhaps a little green and yellow.  Noooooo, not me! I'm not blue.  Or green.  Or yellow.  But my new journal painting is.


I am happy I got another face painted in my journal. I hate this one and I love this one. I was so unhappy with how she was turning out using a more traditional skin tone, so I decided to let loose and just give her some funky color. I am loving how that part turned out. I hate her lips. I really have to work on the lips. Not on this one anymore....but hopefully over time.

  3. She looks kinda, well, thoughtful, in a serious way. Glad you are back at it! hmm, maybe she's wondering what's been keeping you! 8^)

  4. Another face. I like it but think that you don't because she looks a little sad.

  5. The colors are yummy, great idea! She does look a bit forlorn.

  6. How smart of you to say, "Not on this one," and to let any changes go until the next piece. It's a good artist who knows when to stop. There's always another work waiting around the corner. And this one looks perfectly finished to me.

  8. The more abstract, the better. You know what one artist said about the arm of a young guy on his painting (was it Cezanne?) "This arm is so beautiful it just can't be long enough."
    Have you seen the faces by Alexej Jawlensky?

  9. The quote is accredited to Max Liebermann.
