I have not had much time lately to get into my studio.
But Starzia and I went in there yesterday and had a little painting session together.
I normally have an idea of what I want to do and how I want to do it. (With lots of texture!!!)
But yesterday I just squeezed out some paints, got out a canvas and started to paint.
I wanted to have a play as see what happened.
This is where I started..........
I was finding it hard not to add material and paper and make my work textural. I was trying to come up with a flat, colourful and funky image that looked cool.
Here I thought that it was all looking too red and wasn't "working"! So I added white, a headband and some flowers.
I was working on the cheeks, nose and mouth.........
I love the white on the nose and I used my fingerprint for the mouth....I like how that worked too!!
And yes....I couldn't help myself I added some texture with material for her top.
It made me realise that I am truly a textural artist and that is my style and I love it!!!
Still not finished yet but getting there.
I am not sure if she is 100% finished yet or not...I might have to sleep on it.
But either way I think that I might call her Wild Heart, or Brave Heart or Flying Heart.
What do you think??
It was so much fun just having a play and seeing where my paintbrush took me........I love it when by doing something that is not completely you, reaffirms your belief in yourself and the way that you do things.
I am completely unique and so is my style and application and ultimately my art work.
It is such a lovely feeling.
Enjoy being who you are.............
