woohoo - a painting day!

Here's the progress so far - I have put in some more washes of color and blocked out the light and dark areas for the trees, sky and Billie Jane. I don't know why, but I usually look at my painting at this stage and think it will never turn out good. Clueless on why I constantly do that! but I usually do think that... I have learned to just keep on painting and enjoying the process.

Pretty soon....




...I find that I am enjoying the layers of washes and how they look. I love to build up my washes slowly - layer on layer. I like the way the finished painting looks when I do that. If you look closely at my work, you can see that there have been many layers of transparent washes built up to make the final image come alive.


There is still lots more to be done! Keep checking back to see what's next =) You can also follow my progress with more comments on facebook. There's a link on this blog page that will take you there. You can also search for me on facebook with my email:

Hope you are enjoying watching the progress on this painting!
God bless,
Kathy
