Last night I finished her... and then changed her a bit... bigger mouth, no highlight in the eye. I was slightly dissatisfied, until we met this morning and she looks great!
Let's hope both Ildas will get along...

Marilda & Ronilda - Finished

The twins have taken over the guest's room and are certainly planning some mischief...

What happens with a bit of tutoring... you can't be lazy and ignore angles and proportions! And it is rather satisfying... I guess until the habit is formed the stick is a great tool...

Something new

Last month during one of the 2 min sessions I was so tired my hand moved without much thought... and something amazing (to me) was created... the hint of a personal style!

Starting Over

I was going to fix the old image, for I really did not like the wave, but ... it niggled. I am starting all over... and funny thing is, now the woman is much better... I did nothing about her in the last 2 weeks, all this improvement is not the result of extra practise. Yet, the more I work on my waves, the more frustrated I get as progress just is not happening in the same pace.

WAVES - yet again

The difference between these 2 pictures is a bit of "sponge work" and scratchings on the paper using a knife (I hate doing this bit - feels like cheating)... but it works so well that I think it will be the saving grace for the painting that is still waiting for a decision...

And one more!!

I am changing my thoughts about this holiday... yesterday I got one more painting into someone else's wall... the rocks from Vonnie's class are now with one of Stephen's workmates... a kitchen feature.... life is bliss
