creating the drawing always takes the longest for me. making sure the image and the proportions are just right. a painstaking event for me.
the painting part is my most favorite of course. this is where i really let loose and just have fun. what i love even more is deciding on what medium and what colour palette (if any).. this time it was gouache. and again still in my ultramarine blue, and raw umber, shades of grey phase.
the close up
and this is probably at the point where i love it. i hate it. i love it. then 10 minutes later i hate it. then i walk away from it for a day or two and go back to it to take a closer look at what i love and hate about it.
