Winds of Change part two

Worked some more on the painting. The skin came out better than I expected, considering this is acrylics and not oils. Still have some minor little bitsy things to tweak on her, but otherwise, i'm quite surprised and happy with how she is turning out! Especially since I just began painting it yesterday!

On a whim - and a desperate need to paint - I started working on this acrylic painting today. I did this drawing a while back while I was contemplating some of the changes that were beginning to happen in my life. While many of those changes were positive ones, I was still nervous about them and how my life would be different because of them. When I drew this, I imagined myself daring to sneak a glance at my future and feeling the winds of change urging me towards it, despite my hesitations.

I'm a bit nervous about her face. Acrylics and I don't get along when painting people. But we're trying to come to a truce, so it'll be good. :-) I much prefer oils over acrylics, especially when painting people. But for the things I'm working on right now, oils aren't the best thing. However, once I get back from Hawaii, I will be starting a new oil painting and looking out for classes, too. Man, am I looking forward to it!
