Braided

10"x10"
acrylic on canvas

Here one I completed for an upcoming show.This particular beauty took me almost 11 hour to finish.If you were woundering why it took me so long it is because I used 8 different colors for the skin tone alone. I apply the paint in water color washes.Applying paint this way makes the color extra vibrant. Click on the image to get a super sized view and count the colors.

I just started a new drawing book so I spent a little extra time on this drawing as I always do. I like to start each book with a bang.

She looks so peaceful sleeping. That's what made me want to paint this image. She could curl up and fall asleep like this any where, anytime of day. I wish I could do the same.

I had another dream about painting. This time I held the image in my mind until I could find a pencil and paper. I made a quick drawing, then a color sketch. I ran some errands after the initial sketch and completed the painting later in the day.
