Drapery Step 3
Mostly working with darks, deep reds and purples, I paint in the background and the drapery. I like the pattern in the right hand drape, but treat it as dots rather than the more complicated pattern that it is. A couple of quick strokes for the leaves.
Fear less, hope more, eat less, chew more, whine less, breathe more, talk less, say more,
love more, and all good things will be yours. Swedish Proverb
All colors are the friends of their neighbors and the lovers of their opposites. Marc Chagall
"Thriving as an artist--in all of its forms--our entitlement to our lives and livelihood, our imagination, our believed limitations, our expectations and dreams for our work, our professionalism, our perceived competition and, most importantly, our JOY, requires the serving of an eviction notice to the voice of doubt squatting inside us." Sara Genn
