THE FIRST STEPS OF A PAINTING



This is how I start a painting....lots of drawings. I have this idea for a painting which involves Georgia O'Keefe. I am working with very small images. I think I have decided to use a profile. She has such a fascinating one and I love the aged, weathered images. I don't quite have the likeness down but I am getting close to the essence. Another evening of drawing and I will be ready.

Thursday I will be on the road. Friday night I will be at the San Diego Watercolor Society Opening Reception for the Annual National Show. If you are planning to attend, be sure and come by and say hello.

Great sketches - I especially like the last one. Oh, and I didn't comment on your published one - fabulous!

Hi Myrna, Interesting drawings of Georgia O'Keefe; I like her face. I think your drawings are suggesting the strength and intensity of her character.

Have fun in San Diego!

Well, it seems many of us bloggers are obsessed with O'Keeffe right now! I knew immediately some of those were of her. Take a hop over to this artist's blog and see her early abstracts...
