As I'm sure I've mentioned before, when I begin a painting I never know how it will turn out.
I thought I'd share some photos of how 'When Rabbit Girls Dream' evolved...
I'd prepared the background the day before, I love that stage of a painting, just throwing paint around without a care in the world!
(Before this face emerged, it had been a dog, magpie and many other things before she began to appear...)
A little hair style tweak...
but I really wasn't happy with her eyes, something was wrong.
She wanted a nap!
I think she seems much happier now!
Now to block in some tonal variations... and there needs to be a little bit of something at the top of the composition.
I love painting in the negative spaces and see the image clarifying.
Time to step back, have a think and a cup of tea...
A little bit of balancing in the background and I think she's done!
Hope you like!
Wishing you a very creative and merry weekend indeed chucks x
