I Love Painting

Today I got a lot of minor housework tasks out of the way and then settled down to paint. The Hunger Games movies are on TV so I listened to the first two while working, and it just felt so good to concentrate on the paint strokes and mixing of colors without feeling like I'm on a deadline.

The wigs painting: worked on the hot-pink-haired mannequin. I need to find a tube of paint that will let me match that absurdly vivid hair color. Did a lot on the nose and sunglasses.

Also worked on the country inn. Paid special attention to the windows and the roof lines. I look forward to filling in the trees and bushes in the background where they silhouette against the blazing sky, and detailing the stone walls of the inn.

This is the latest work on the Variations painting. I'm putting in some earth tones on the stones so they're not a monotonous grey.

All in all, a good afternoon of restful painting.
