Goodmorning lovely ones… another Wednesday, a rainy Wednesday (can you see the rain splatters on my window?) but that gives me a good excuse to stay inside and spend the day in my atelier. Never a dull moment ay?
My neat desk is screaming for a colorful mess, don’t you agree?
There’s two canvasses on my desk that I worked on over the weekend. The big one lay in the atelier for weeks with only a background and a rough sketch (some sort of face) on it. I kinda blocked after that… I’m not good at painting faces so I was almost at the point of wiping it off, but then I saw the work of Cuban artist Hector Frank (thanks for the link Seth!) and I got inspired right away. A face does not have to look realistic after all…
It’s not finished yet, but I like the way it is going.
Size: 30 x 40 cm / 11.8 x 15.8 inch
Next painting is made on a piece of cardboard (I told you I was inspired!) and it’s on my desk because I am in doubt if it is finished or not… should I work on it some more (the eye, the mouth?) or leave it as is. What do you think?
Size: 18 x 24 cm / 7.1 x 9.5 inch
I also bound a new journal last week; it’s the book at the back (to the left on the picture) that you can hardly see because of the reflection of the light on the cover. I wove beads to the binding so the spine looks very special but I show the photos some other time. After all, miss Julia doesn’t like it when we write long posts. So this is it for today, enjoy your week. Go do something fun. Paint a face!
