I have some tester pots of a three or four shades of green that I got when I was trying to choose the paint color for my house. I want to use one of the lighter shades as the under coat and then use a darker one on top that is a bit more than dry brushed over it and that will be the cat girl storyteller's background color combo for her skirt. So I got the first coat on -- it took forEVER. While it was drying I made a quick run out to the grocery store.
|First coat without the parts that needed to be brushed on.|
|I found it pretty amusing that the name of this color is Humorous Green.|
|Second coat of Humorous Green and then I moved the tables around a bit and rolled on the same color to two of the blank canvases. It is funny to me that the room looks so much bigger with the tables and chairs scattered around the room.|
|I love this big head guy so much. I know I will have him in the show but I don't know yet if I will want to have him be for sale.|
After that I was still pretty charged up even though I really needed to stop for a break to feed the cats and then make my dinner. So (instead) I papered another one of the blank canvases. My intention is/was to use a neutral paper as the background and project images onto it to paint (see what I was saying earlier?) or collage. But when I hung it up on the wall to dry I was seeing images coming forward in just that first layer. I have three more blank canvases I can still do the projecting with...I really want to do that.
|Every time I look at this photo I see more guys trying to come forward...I saw a different one when the canvas was still laying flat on the table.|
