So I have been busy busy busy drawing Eli’s Family Tree for the Family Strange project. I also kind of developed a new style for my work both in technique and drawing style.
There will be eight new paintings for Eli’s Family Strange Circus! I’m excited to see how they are coming along.
I definitely pushed myself artistically as I worked on turning the body and face, and so many other small things! Every day is a learning curve and I love it! Sometimes it hurts… but I love it!
While I love color I think I’ve been a little afraid to paint and draw with it! I tend to feel comfortable in the muted vintage washed colors but lately I’ve been trying to embrace bold beautiful colors as well!
And this here little lady is my biggest challenge right now… my tattooed lady! Drawing small is a challenge for me and also drawing the types of things that are tattoos is still a little outside my wheel house. I haven’t done much realistic drawing so I’m still trying to figure out how her tattoos are going to turn out! So thats what all is on my workbench. Drawing and painting Eli’s fun family!
