Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days – Day 20


Day 20!

What I like:

I always have this debate of how much to mask the pattern vs letting it push through. In part due to the exhaustion, I'm stopping earlier than I might if this painting was taking me a week or a month. However, I also stopped early because I sort of fell in love with how she looked earlier than I normally do. I actually went a layer beyond where I wanted to purely because I thought I should.

Where to work:

I'm not sure what to do with pencil lines in my work. I'm not against seeing the original drawing and in fact, I often really love seeing parts of the original drawing underneath. However, that's only if it seems to fit in purposefully. I still feel like I see my lines because I haven't figured out what to do with them as opposed to them adding to the gesture of the piece. I'll be thinking on that in the weeks ahead.
