My new thing starting last Sunday was something I've labeled as freeform. I don't allow myself to make a draft using my usual pencil with an electric eraser to fix mistakes. I took it a step even further and now paint first and add pen detail later. I'm going to continue this for awhile to see where it takes me - completely out of my comfort zone!! For these two ladies, I got gutsier using a big brush with lots of water pushing myself further into that scary zone of discovery. I'll admit I've gotten a little attached to my lime green and red gloved lady. Having "The Devil Wears Prada" on the TV as I painted had a bit of an influence as well!
It is still a scary world to do art without my eraser! I feel like a trapeze artist with no net (and I'm VERY afraid of heights!!). But come on in everyone - the water's fine!! Did I mention I can't swim. But then that doesn't stop me from going into the water! ;)
