I almost didn't post this one. I painted her yesterday and I have to say I was unsure through the whole process. It is so different than my last one. And that bothered me. I don't know why. Sometimes I try to hard to have an image in my mind of how I want it to turn out and it never does. Maybe its because she seems darker to me. But that should be ok. This is my first stab at long hair. I also started a heart necklace and am unsure of whether to keep it or not. No title yet. I am waiting for her to tell me!
I am sure I am thinking too much . . . that is what I often do. When I finally stepped away and went back to look at her from a distance I saw how good she came out. I like the colors even though they are a little dark. Have any of you felt this way where you were not sure where a painting was going and wondered about the results? Maybe this is what happens in the process to find my style. I wonder if she is a mirror of my emotions or just her own being . . .
