One of these things just doesn’t belong.’
Can you tell which one it is? LOL
I thought I knew what my series was going to be for the ‘Y is for Yellow’ class. I was so sure.
Then I started ….or rather I procrastinated.
I started and stopped and changed my mind a gazillion times.
I wanted to push myself and do more ‘painterly’ faces.
In different mediums. Watercolor, acrylic, pastels….on canvas or cradle board.
To have tangible pieces when I finished. Not just a digital file.
I did the first one in acrylic. I hated it. Hated to process, hated the result.
Okay, next ones done in watercolor on canvas board I had either collaged or gessoed.
I got as far as the basic face shape/color.
Then I did the redheaded boy and froze! THAT didn’t go as well as I’d hoped!
I procrastinated some more. I was afraid the rest of them would turn out as lousy as the redheaded boy, so I scanned them into my computer and finished them digitally.
Why fight it?
In the immortal words of Popeye, ‘I am what I am.’ My style is what it is.
I got as far as five and I’m calling it a series!
