And speaking of comfort zones and reclining, Phyllis has left the shelter of the coop for her egg laying. She's found a new fabulous...of course it's fabulous, she's Phyllis...spot that is so secluded that I thought she'd escaped our yard when I couldn't find her. Dave spotted her reclined, chicken style, in a little cubby hole formed by our deck, with a delightfully leafy branch covering her completely. My girl, Phyllis, keeping luxury in the laying world.
And now back to my painting....
|I started with the background. I painted it upside-down |
in case the gray dripped. It didn't.
|I sketched the figure with a pencil.|
|I painted a watery line of black paint on my pencil marks.|
|I filled her in with paint. Now I was able to see that her left arm|
was way too short and her waist was way too thin. Also her
neck wasn't right...same with her shoulder. I had a lot of work to do.
|I did some work on her shoulder, neck, and waist.|
I'm going to let her rest and tomorrow I'll see what
she has to say about everything else I need to work on.
I'm loving working on this one!
