OK, please don't be hatin', m'kay?
This one isn't finished, but it is getting to where I have an idea of what I am aiming at....
Now, please, I know she looks a little funny, please remember that this was, above all, a colour experiment...to see if or how I could handle a painting with such a BOLD underpainting/midcolour. So...I was really looking at colour values and playing with colour warmth and saturation rather than geographical structure.
Which is a fancy way of saying that I know it looks really freaking weird, but I am happy with how I am managing the colours, and NO it isn't finished yet, I can fix the structure up a whole lot with just a couple of brush strokes...time time time time time:
Done, I think, I may add some washes...sorry the photo is fuzzy...
This was the idea from the Murakami book, and it is getting to what I am thinking of, I will have to think a little more though.....
This one I kind of like. It is odd for me, I usually want to paint in supersaturated colours so this one, even more than the one above, is something of a departure, and an experiement...but
It's always fun slinging the paint around. There is more, another three or four pieces all underway, but that's enough I think for now.
Hope the long weekend is treating you well.
