Last night, my friend Katie said she'd like to see more of my works in progress. She pointed out that all I show you are finished items, but she likes to see and hear about the process along the way. So for today, that's what I'm showing: something I've been working on for a long time.
This is what this piece of paper looked like in July 2011 (I had painted it this way at least one year earlier):
Since then, I've made some considerable adjustments. Now this is what it looks like!
I know, a total 180. Literally, too. The paper has been turned 180 degrees and re-painted. You can see a hint of the orange from the top right corner on view #1 underneath the purple at the bottom left of view #2. And a tiny amount of bright pink from the lower left corner in #1 survived up near the wing in #2. If you're able to see the underneath layers in these images (click on the image for better views), you'll see similarities there too. There are certain underlying things that I still very much want to show!
Hmm... where will I go next with this one?
Please take my poll to the right--I'd like to make this blog more of what you want to see/read.
