Getting the colors in her coat just right, was a little tricky for me. Since I do not work from an established palette, I had to play around with mixing a combination of colors, i.e., burnt umber, yellow ochre, burnt sienna and titanium white on my palette. I enjoy the experimentation and seeing the colors I can come up with in the paints.
I’m working toward painting on a daily basis. There is some frustration because the day to day family obligations must be met. I need a clear head to approach the creative process hence too many distractions does not a painting make or something like that. :) It’s always a good feeling and almost a relief when I can finally get down on paper or canvas the idea floating around in my head. It’s a release because the creative energy is pent up. I think many artists feel in a similar way. I would love to hear thoughts on this subject. The desire to create but other things, life so speak getting in the way. How does it effect your creative flow.
