#7 -Girl with Chandelier Earring

#7 -Girl with a chandelier EarringWow. Day seven. This means I actually made it through my first week. WAHOO!

Today I created a portrait of a woman quite simply for the excuse to create fun backgrounds, clothing and accessories!

It is a mixed medium.  Water color in the background and acrylic in the foreground.  Because I’m trying to tackle a painting a day, I think I will stick to watercolors.  I find acrylics dry so fast that I waste way too much time opening and closing all of the tubes.

What I do like about this painting is the background. It looks translucent to me. I love all the colors bleeding and mingling with each other. What I don’t particularly care for is the woman.  Next time I will spend a little more time on the composition and a little less time rushing into painting. You are going to have to bear with me, I am going to make a few of these “decorated Ladies” until I create one I truly love!

Tune in tomorrow for my first pottery class of the year. I’m sure to get messy!
