It was back to faces over the weekend.
And watercolours.
Truth be told, it was procrastination from doing other things....


I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille

If you line up or group your artwork, it will show you your palette.

An old painting gets a do-over.


I recycle paintings that I don't like anymore. I use rubbing alcohol to remove most of the acrylic paint, then begin again.



A big brush and lots of black, then a warm yellow in the spaces left.


An enso in pale pink, reinforced with black.

I've been working on this painting for the last couple of days. I made some deliberate marks on the canvas, and after that I got out of my own way and let things happen. I don't worry about doing this because I can paint over anything I don't like, something that happened a few times with this painting.

I'm calling my daily paintings "daily artworks".  It would be more accurate...
This is today's offering, a pair of ATCs (artist trading cards),
and a brand-new listing in my Etsy shop.


You've Come a Long Way, Baby

 It seems EtsyMini (which used to showcase my shop in the sidebar) has been abolished by the Etsy powers that be. I've replaced it with a link.

So I'll just put this new listing here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/540480503/potted-plant-original-painting-acrylic

Feel free to use the discount coupon applicable to everything in the shop: enter SPECIAL2 when checking out to get 15% off.

Daily paintings.

This was a painting done over several days. It's the first portrait I've painted of a real live person. I'm not showing the finished version because I want it to be a surprise.



Yesterday's daily painting... after days of painting the portrait, portraits being very complicated, I went for something simple. There are probably 101 versions of this potted plant; this is mine.
