Painting in progression

 My model
 My charcoal sketch



Finally a new painting.  It seems like quiet a while I guess because I have been painting in my journal.  This one is on canvas and I do plan to have some originals for sale in my Shop soon.  I will announce the sale as I am not quite ready.  Right now I have collage sheets for sale and I'm thrilled at their success.
*****************
I also wanted to share with you my friend Zorana has made several collage sheets that are fabulous.  And this weekend she has added this Digital Collage Kit for making ACEOs and ATC cards.
Check out her blog here and watch the video she made demonstrating the fun she had making ATCs.
I think this is the coolest idea.

Be back when I can,
Sharon

  6. I missed seeing your art so much! This is stunning! You could have stopped at any stage (I love pic. #2) and it would look beautiful. Thank you for mentioning my collage sheets (made me blush). xoxoxo

  8. Been thinking of you, the vision is of you with a brush in your hand and other various art things at your side.

    You can't imagine how much I have used the knowledge from the faces in technicolor, and I don't even know I am using that knowledge until I think about it. So muc fun to add more colors to faces.

    This is a wonderful painting, and I can see how you were drawn to the model it grabs one right away.
    So much fun to see the drawing and progress.

    Yesterday and today I was doing windows, and the reward was to sketch a face after a section of windows.

    I hope your finding time to reward yourself with time for art. It seems you are and painting beautiful.

  14. Gorgeous and inspiring. I love both ladies so much that I decided to invite myself to play along and do my own interpretation of the original. Drawing done and now need some light to add anything further.
