OK. Making a little progress here.
I’m glad to have today’s photo because the paper I’m working on is so large it is hard to gain perspective. It measures 37″ x 57″. I now see that I’d like to lose the skirt and drop the black down to create a dress.
My plan is to paint an under-painting and then I am going to create hand-made stamps to create a top layer. I will make stamps of eyes, nose, mouth, hair, plus fabric patterns for all the garments. I may even create a wallpaper for the background. I love making stamps and I love the print-like quality they can bring to artwork. I’ve never done this before, so I can’t say with any accuracy how well it will turn out. Either way, I will enjoy the ride and call it one big “experiment”!
Here is the progression thus far:
The subject matter is a commentary on my life. The many things I am juggling at once during this 365 challenge. It’s kinda funny, so far to me, it looks like a cross between a Hindu deity and Charlie’s Angels!
It will take some time to iron out the kinks, but at least I feel like I made a little headway today!
