Guess what's DONE.
Oh yeah, it's done.
That pic is kind of crap since I forgot to snap it while it was still on the easel.
I can't believe I finished a painting in only FOUR sessions. That's light spead for me.
I'm not sure how I feel about this finished painting. I don't have any really strong feelings about it. I like it because I accomplished what I wanted to do (a different style and a quick painting) but I dislike it because it doesn't make me react much and it doesn't make other people react much. I guess it's more a painting for me (for the fun of it) then a display piece for others to really enjoy.
I'm quite happy with it and had fun doing it so that makes it a success.
Now I get to think about what I want to do NEXT.
I'm thinking it's time to finally get some oval canvases. I've been wanting to play with those for a while.
That would mean only one thing then. . .PORTRAITS.
Yeah, I like the sound of that. That will motivate me to finish the second robot I abandoned months ago. I need to make two Robot Portraits. One of Mr. Roboto and one of his companion, Cylindra (yes, I named the as yet unfinished robot and she's a she).
I'm going back to my more realistic style (with lots of shading/blending--I do enjoy that) but I think I'll go for smallish canvases (so I might get them both done in a years time--I paint so slowly!).
I won't be painting again until the new class session starts so that will give me plenty of time to get Cylindra done and get my canvases.
