I have, this week, successfully gotten paint on three of my favorite shirts, a pair of pants, and my new white shirt. This is the hard stuff, too- oil paints. Thank goodness for SPRAY 'n WASH with RESOLVE POWER! And, it's a really good thing that the bottle has 36% more (30 oz. at the price of 22 oz.) Why 36%? Who knows... Anyhow, I- in the process of ruining my wardrobe- did a couple more paintings. I still don't really know what my style is or even what I'm doing, but I kinda like the messiness of these two.
I love dancers. I think they are so beautiful and graceful. Confession: I have always wished I had taken up dancing long ago. Well, since I am not a dancer I have to strive for the next best thing: painting a dancer. This was a pretty tough painting for me, although it appears to be so simple. I think it was difficult because I tried using acrylics entirely. I like the idea of painting the under layers in acrylic and finishing with oil, but I just stuck with the acrylics because I liked how it was turning out. Next time I think I will try to finish with oil- I just really like the texture of oils. Anyhow, here's the painting- oh, it's bigger than any other one also. It is 24 X 24, so HUGE for me!
This was Lucy's birthday card. I painted it the night before, so it's kinda thrown together, but besides that I didn't let it dry thoroughly before spraying it with varnish. Well, the varnish and the wet paint reacted poorly and caused some blotches. The colors are a little less vibrant than they should be also. Ah well.
