Now that we’re settled in our new residence, I lastly have been portray once more. For years I had been portray on small items of paper from our eating room desk — I didn’t really feel I had sufficient house so as to add an easel and bigger canvases into the combination. However now I’ve the house for a portray space for myself in my residence workplace and have been portray, incessantly, for the previous few months — nights, weekends, over winter break — portray, portray, portray.
I get loads of pleasure from portray my family members, imagined folks and scenes, and self-portraits too. Making an attempt to get likeness, but additionally engaged on capturing the spirit of the individual. That’s the toughest half actually. A few of these work I’m very proud of, others I can barely have a look at and preserve hidden away in my closet, however with every new portray that I do, I be taught one thing new and am loving the method so, so a lot.
This one is a “mixed-media” piece. I used wire for my curls. Pun meant 😉
My daughter, Ida, has been within the combine too, getting her portray in whereas listening to stand-up comedy! It’s been an awesome bonding exercise for her and I.
And this one among Ida could also be my favourite…
Hope ya’ll are having fun with your winter thus far!
