Here's my little lion. I had an 8x10 board with a pencil sketch on it that I was terrified to paint. It sat in the corner for 2 months. It's actually a good reference, since there isn't enough detail for me to get hung up on. I can concentrate on values.
My angel still needs his halo of hair highlights, and I think I can push the darks further. But I'm happy. Very happy.
I had two false starts today (trying to re-work old stuff, a big mistake) and I felt a little lost. An encouraging message from Dianne Mize was just what I needed to persevere.
Hmm, how about the Mamas and the Papas for Dianne. Sometimes I have felt displaced in time, a hippy born 20 years late.
