My next major project is laid out on my table - a gorgeous drop leaf table lent to me by my awesome land lord - and surprise, surprise... it's a girl in a field. Why mess with a good thing? I decided to do the first sketch like this because I'm using two canvases. I usually sketch with the canvas on the easel, but because this is a bit of a bigger project, I want to really do my best. This one is for me. Well, I say that now, but if someone were to want it, I'm sure I could give it up. I really haven't done anything for my bedroom yet, so I'm hoping this will turn out. It's going to be the right colours for sure - lavender and yellow!
Oh, and you'll notice some old pieces in the background: a charcoal sketch of a bird in a tree, a pencil sketch of two children walking on a beach, and my latest pastel. The more I look at that pastel painting, the more I really like what I did with the water.
