|"Feeling the Love" - Acrylic and Charcoal on Canvas- 8x10|
This small painting is acrylic with matte medium and charcoal. The piece started with a bright overlay of orange and yellow - two of my favorite colors these days. Perhaps that is because of the blues and grays outside this time of year.
I started the drawing in charcoal beginning with the eyes of the figure on the right. That part was completed first. Then I let it rest. I needed fresh eyes.
After coming back to it with afresh, I began the figure on the right and then the background. My friend Tina asked me if I ever painted in an abstract style. Since she asked, I experimented with that too.
Sometimes the best things happen when you're just playing. Ha! Ha!
I'm wondering what you do that feels like play? Feel free to comment below.
