I can't wait till my Wallis sanded paper arrives the end of the week. I'll see for myself what that's all about. This painting is botanical. It took me a minute to see I was looking at a seated woman. Nice, interlocking composition.
hmmm. This one unsettles me a bit. I'm not sure why.
This is so dramatic!Is the skeleton like leg meant to be symbolic? Or is it for effect?
Yes, Nice composition - so much dynamic motion - and I love the size!
I had several pictures to page through, and obviously I'm not alone in saying your September 7th knocked our collective socks off. And 9/21 fascinates me. The colors, the way the colors define the body, the upright lines, the arm.
Thanks, Linda. You will likely love the paper.Botanical is not a bad description.
Margaret, it is probably the state I left it in. Just a bit further, and it would probably be beautiful.
Najma, thanks.I left the leg skeletal on purpose. I wanted to stop before I had worked it to completion.
Thanks, Katherine.Part of me is feeling like going back and working more on this. Maybe later.
Thanks, AH. You have singled out two of my recent favorites.
I'm with Margaret on "unsettling." Something or everything here is not happy, not entirely healthy. Very effective at that.
You and Linda both keep introducing me to art supplies I have never head of - like the Wallis sanded paper - so much to learn! Love the bold colors in this one as well.
Banjo, I was thinking of it as incomplete, rather than unsettled.
Naturally Outdoors, if you are doing pastels, Wallis paper is something to try out. Lovely surface and good strength.
I don't see this as unsettling. It looks dynamic to me. Despite her seated pose, she looks filled with energy, vibrant.
Thanks, Susan. It is surprising sometimes, what people see. I think it looks dynamic, too.But I was sick when I drew this, and it was the last drawing I did before I packed it in for the day, so maybe my exhausted state is more reflected in this than I knew.
