Close Ups


Well, it looks as if I posted here a few times during the first two weeks in Vermont which is a couple more posts than I specifically recall writing. Something about the water there made me even more forgetful than usual. Heh. And after the two week mark, I went into overdrive in the studio so totally bailed on writing here, although I did continue to update daily on Facebook. So if you keep up on my FB public page you might remember that I totally kicked butt throughout the whole month and did a LOT of painting! It was exhilarating and exhausting and wonderful and I am still trying to gather myself up from all of it.

I am planning to write several posts about my time in Vermont over the next week or so and will certainly include more photos. I am also in the process of photographing the work that I did there, which is proving to be very difficult, mostly because I used a lot of darker colors and they sure pick up a glare, no matter what I do. So it will be at least a few days before I am ready to post the final images of the paintings I did there.

But I have managed to get a few close ups ready and so I am posting them today. And you'll just have to stay tuned to see the full paintings of these lovely ladies........

Tracy, I love these! You have developed the faces more than before and that's a good thing. I want to see more.

Tracy said...

Thanks Melody! She is quite the character;)

Thanks Caio!

Deborah, yes, I ended up painting the faces a bit more than I intended and then decided it worked better. I still would prefer they were a bit less developed but I guess my instincts are going somewhere else;) I will be posting more of the paintings soon!

Lady #2 is awesome. The economy of line and shape just adds to the expressiveness.
