Bad Hair Day

What happens when you don't paint for a while? You end up painting purple cows having bad hair days.

I actually, wanted to work with tones rather than just black, brown and grey so I started layering on washes. I like the way she can out however, I couldn't quite capture the look in her eyes. I may try doing a close up of her face later on. One of the things I find, when I settle in and paint a subject, is all the little details that I would normally miss like, cows too, have bad hair days!

I must say that I love it. I feel that you find a Zen while you work, it really shows in what you do. While I am but a lowly traveling photographer, I can apreciate the creativity and eye for composition that goes into your work. As far as the eyes go I would love to see like a head and shoulders painting.
I will check back often :>)

Hi Tami. I agree with Donna's comment. I just went through your earlier work and can see a real progression! Your earlier work is lovely but there is a quality that is coming through now that seems to speak with perhaps your voice. The fact that you made this a purple cow says it all. I think this painting is lovely!

Thanks so much for writing me and leading me to your site.
