So, I painted two more things for my 30 series. I'm not going to get all 30 done in 30 days with my schedule what it is. But then, I knew that going in. I asked my husband to pick something for me to paint.... He chose an object that couldn't be more different from my doll, more masculine, more heavy and MALE!!! It's a print-making brayer. The thing weighs a ton for it's size.It was fun to paint it. The drawing had to be carefully done and the dark roller was a challenge to get right.
As I was setting up to paint the brayer, I glanced out on my deck to take in some rare sunshine and I noticed a little bird lying near the door. Sometimes they stun themselves and lay still, but sadly this little guy was gone. I thought about it for a bit, then decided that I needed to paint him and put him in the series. He came as part of spring to my studio door and the least I could do was study and paint him. I'd never done that before and it was really kind of amazing to paint him/her. That little critter was alive and flittering about the yard. So delicate and small.
Wow, I'm learning so much as a painter already! I'm so excited about what it might feel like at the end of the project!
