I wanted to finish one more painting for Somerville Open Studios last weekend, and figured I could use a different, messier approach with the paint, and – oh, just whip this up on Friday night. I was delusional.
It was a reminder that we have styles all our own and my style is not something I can just switch around, like a color (like sepia, here!). Rrrrrgh.
Still have lots to do (eye creases, lashes, and brows; forehead and hair), but will finish tonight. Really!
I’ll practice my faster, messier painting another time…
