There's mud in this painting, but it can be corrected--tomorrow--with a little drying time. Meanwhile I am freeing up. It's just going to take some time till I am as free with oils as I am with acrylics. --Looking at the painting her, the paint is a little thick; I see ridges. Then there's Kelly's brother in-law.
|Kelly's brother in-laws|
Jon I've got. He still doesn't have a mouth, (not such a bad thing), and his forehead is a bit off on the right side, but he is who he is. His brother is not quite.
Glancing into the studio yesterday on one of my trips by, I thought,"Analyze the facial proportions." I did. I got his eyes. I shortened his chin and, in the process, elongated his neck, a move in the right direction. But his nose and mouth still need work. So what else is new?
My double oven broke. My cleaning spree is getting costly. I've got to give it up. It's my fault. In a fit of homemakeritis, I decided to self clean my oven and the feature blew the thermostat and the interior fuse. I have a guy coming out Monday on a "diagnostic call." So it's fry pans for us for a while. Artists should not clean. They should stick with what they know. I've been telling Honey this. He'll believe it when he's handed the bill.
