Thumbnails…trying to get the negative space around their heads looking good. I studied and stared at a lot of madonna and child paintings (there seems to be a lack of iconic dad and child pics out there!).
Poor old neglected paints lined up after a big cleanup – struggling to open some, checking if they’re soft enough to use, cleaning the tops for ease of access, re-aquainting self with the colour and scent – plus a treat of three new tubes.
Quick profile and colour fun.
As well as lots of reading about how to paint just before sleeping so that my dreams are full of learning. It really works!
