oil, 16" x 20"
Okay...finished her last night. I like how this painting turned out. Although I do think the lighting in my studio is so blue that it affected the color I saw and how I painted her skin. It works....but I may not want the same look in my next painting. Its wonderfully bright in my studio, but I can see this light is always going to lend a cool light to my paintings....not the warm glow I may want in others.
If you walked up to my studio at night....the light coming from the windows is so blue...
it almost looks like someone is welding inside! I was going for "day light" bulbs, but I think I took it too far. Back to Ace Hardware store! I kinda love going there anyways...it's in my neighborhood...they recognize me, we work well together :)
At times, I've thought of working there....I could see myself as a hardware store girl.
It's very comforting being around all the tools, parts and pieces to make anything you want.
I'll stick with painting for now.
Thank you for looking!
