Today was day two of blue. It's amazing how day two of something can feel so much less overwhelming than day one. Day one of blue felt restricted. Oh I want to grab pink? TOO BAD.
Day two was more about seeing what a limited palette could do. I could feel myself pushing in new ways. It felt like rewarding discovery.
What I like: At her left shoulder there is a place where the hair edge and the background become almost indistinguishable. It was a last minute thought as I brought the light background glaze up in the hair just ever so slightly. But I love how it gives the eye a passage way into the hair instead of stopping everything at a hard edge. I'm using the lone-hue so that I can concentrate on things exactly like lost and found edge. Win!
What needs work: There's a swatch of patternless blue around her right eye that doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to me. A lot of what is happening on her right side seems unclear to me. I would need to let the painting sit for a bit and come back and in and make choices about what to do (or not do) there.
