I was apprehensive about continuing on this canvas since i felt it went so well the first time and was afraid of messing it up – silly i know, but these are the mind games that go on! So i went at it tentatively at first, just putting in some reddy-pinks over the burnt umber to slowly get a feeling for it again.
at the last moment i darkened hair and eyebrows. I seem to have avoided the faces somewhat, a little scared i think, and haven’t touched the background since the beginning. Those little hands are looking a bit like claws but i’m trying not to stress, there are layers yet to come. All in all progressing nicely, moving forward and learning how to paint yeehaaa!
