new oil portrait collage painting
If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen me post this photo last night. I stayed up until 2am painting, and when I woke up this morning, I wiped the painting. Argh! All that work down the drain. Ah well, the collage paper on her nose was bothering me, and I couldn’t get past it. You’ll see what I mean if you scroll down.
This is what I’m talking about. Once I saw it, I couldn’t unsee it. It made her look like she’d been in the sun, and was peeling from a bad burn or something. Poor dear.
It wasn’t too bad from a distance, but eh..I’m starting over again tonight on a new canvas, as long as we continue to have power, that is. Looks like some of the state has been issued tornado warnings, so we’ll see how it goes. I’m keeping a close eye on the tv, and the sky.
As I was painting last night, I noticed this on the rug behind me. Aww..I’m never alone with these two love bugs around. 🙂 It’s always great to have company in the wee hours of the morning.
