Painting; Making Progress

I’m still at it.  I worked on the dress.  Making the lace and folds of this pretty dress come out was a lot of fun!

Next step, fix the face.  The face isn’t quite done, but starting at the top and working down from there she is starting to come alive.  Her hair has lost it’s red shades, a little sparkle is daubed into the eye, and her skin tone is beginning to even out.

Poetry Challenge: Piano Practice

I haven’t had the chance to write poetry for a while.   I have been too busy painting.  My latest project  is of my granddaughter.

Gwen Sketch at Organ-fullSuch a pretty subject.

I want to write a poem inspired by this photo, or the painting that I create from it.  Join me if you like.  Share a poem that is inspired by this photo and link to it in the comment section.  Or write it into the comments.  I would love to read it!


I have been documenting the steps as I proceed.

1st, the sketch:  I put this in my sketch pad.  It gives me an idea of what I want it to look like when I’m done.



Next, I rough it in on the canvas:


Added some color:


It is still a work in progress.  I will post more photos of the painting as I progress.
