Todaym I am participating to the new project from Samantha and Dina: create two canvases a week. If possible 82×102 or more. I combine this with our 52 paintings done in 52 weeks. Here is Sam’s blogpost for more clarity: right there.
2011 seems to be a really prolific year here in Inner Voices. Which bring a good, very very good feeling in my heart. And now that I am more confident regarding the fact of selling my original paintings, pleasure is even bigger, knowing that it will speak to someone who will be loving having the painting home.
I could not blog about the first week, so I do week #1 and #2 in the same post. Here is week #1, with only one painting (my work week was shorten to 3 days because of our vacation in the US):
It’s been quite a long time since I painted on bigger canvas, this one is 14″x18″; because of practical shipping reasons, I mostly paint on 8×10 or 9×12 canvas board. And thanks to Connie from Dirty Footprints Studio, I LOVE to paint big…
I really like how she turned out.
And now, here are the 3 (gloops) of this week:
I am so over the moon to be able to express what happens inside of me onto a painting. Even if people do not necessarily get it, or not as I feel it. The mouth located in her throat is something powerful to me.
I don’t usually use 3D elements but I had fun painting this paper flowers with Lindy Stamp Gang’s product (there are two-toned flowers thanks to it) and add it in her hair. This is this je ne sais quoi that makes all the difference.
The words on this one are missing. And I really don’t like her eyes… but I am affraid to make it worse by wanting to fix it.
I just adoooooooooore this painting and its little imperfections. Inspired by the famous Davy Jones in «Pirates of the Caribbeans». This is in these moments that I appreciate having the sketchbook nearby with a pain (in this case, this time was in bed, with the sketchbook on my night table !). These movies are visually jam packed with inspiration, just amazing ! I wish I’d know how to draw…
