JANUARY 21


Remember - GO SLOW.  There are places here where I saw a huge shadow - along her jawline, down her throat - and I DANGIT painted too long, too dark, all at once.  BLAST ME.  The nice thing about this paper (and hopefully, the paint colors themselves) is that I can remove some of it - some more than others.  I succeeded in working all around yesterday, I can see that, and the new challenge is - where do I blend the person and the branches.  How distinct is the boundary?  This is definitely more pains taking then a simple portrait and the challenge continues to be to not spend too much time in any one place so the entire painting grows all at once blending and making one cohesive whole.  It is fun that this really isn't a portrait but a painting, which sounds weird...
