The Week before last I was in the mood for blue, so I painted another series of blue pieces of clothing. They are all done in oil on 4 x 6 inch heavy watercolor paper and I used a palette knife and very small brushes.
I think it's easier to make things look more painterly and loose in oil paint vs acrylics, at least for me it is. I tend to tighten things up when I paint with acrylics.
I tried to work quickly on these and not get too caught up in details...not worrying about perfect sleeves or perfect flowers. I see things I might have changed had I slowed down a bit, but if I had slowed down I know things would have tightened up.
Painting these pieces of clothing got me thinking how much fun fashion designers must have at work every day. And imagine how excited they get when they see someone walking down the street wearing clothing they dreamt up one day while having morning coffee.
I am still working on my Finding Faith project and I cannot wait to show it to you. It is tempting to give you what I have so far, but I think you will enjoy the whole kit and caboodle all at once instead of in parts.
But here's another trickle of evidence that I am working.
