Sweet and Mellow
5" x 7" watercolor
When in doubt paint a face. That's what I always say. :) This week, for some reason, painting has not been flowing smoothly. And it's not exactly good timing since I have a workshop on Saturday that I'm teaching.
Recent painting failures + me in front of a large crowd = anxiety that no amount of chocolate or cupcakes can help.
So, last night I was determined to paint something that I felt good about. And of course I decided on a face, this time it just happens to be a sweet puppy face instead of a human one.
I have always loved yellow labs, well all labs really, but especially yellow labs. And this girl's eyes just went straight to my heart. I really loved painting her dark eyes and muzzle against her creamy white fur. I keep waiting to feel her wet nose nudging my palm to give her some love. :))
Wish me luck for Saturday and I'll see you next week!
Friday update: In case you guys wanted to read a little extra about me (because, you know, I'm soooo quiet and reserved over here ;) head on over to the Daily Paintworks blog. I'm their artist interview for this week and I was really honored that they picked me, click here to read the interview. :))
