My holiday is definitely over and today is a working day. It’s cold but nice and sunny outside. I did not go out today and don’t plan to before tonight and tonight is a movie night, we will probably watch Fantastic Beasts for lack of anything more attractive. I do not expect much from that movie, but let’s see…
I have finished these two girls yesterday before my travel back:
This morning I lacked inspiration to create anything. I did a few strokes on one unfinished journal page, gessoed two pages in my She Thinks Positive Journal and that’s all. I’ve been scanning the doodles I did over the past days to upload them to my Redbubble shop. I feel tired and nervous, probably because of the change of temperature and scenery. Everything seems to be getting to my nerves and I really need to make a huge effort to stop myself reacting negatively. I will take it easy today…
It’s cloudy and windy today. There were even several drops of rain. I went for a run and then for a short walk in the town. We planned to have a coffee and sit in the sun, but it did not really go according to the plan, being all cloudy and windy.
These are the three ladies I painted in my She Thinks Positive Journal over the past two days:
I think I need to improve the noses a bit, somehow I am a bit nervous about them… Also I will obviously have to start working on ears. As I am not yet even half way through my journal, there will be plenty of chance to practice.
It was good light this morning so I recorded a video of today’s girl:
I hope you will like it.
Meet girls No. 40 and 41:
I did them before I bought those new watercolors, but they had to wait for their turn to appear in public 🙂
I still have to work on improving noses and mouths, as I don’t feel quite confident with them yet. I am pretty fine with the eyes though, it was about time after two years of almost every day trying to improve them.
It looked very nice outside at around 8.00 am when I went for a run. There was lots of sunshine, but also freezing wind, so not a very pleasant run at all. Since then the clouds are accumulating and it’s becoming quite dull. In addition, It’s Monday again…
Yesterday I did two faces in She Thinks Positive Journal. The first one I do not like so much:
What I like about her is her expression, sad and pensive. I tried to draw an ear, which did not really work quite well. Not surprising at all because I never draw ears. The next one I like better:
I tried to do the nose in a different way and I think it’s a success. At least I like it much better than the previous style of noses I did, so I will stick to it in the future. I worked a lot on the eyes and that also worked well I think. So, two lessons learned on this one, which is quite a success. What I do not like are her eyebrows. I was so concentrated on the eyes that I simply did not pay attention and they became too strong and went out into her hair. I am thinking about filming one of these girls, maybe tomorrow if the light will be good.
