The year has started in my other life so I have not been able to paint for over a week and the call is so strong. Ai! Anyway here is the project I had started which I have taken a step forward this morning. I am listening to Robin Mark as I paint, beautiful Irish music of worship.
Why do I take on this sort of thing? Each butterfly is a beautiful jewel in itself and I have to put in how many? I can count 25! So this project could take a while. And I have already seen how I would like to do it differently.
OK here is the next stage – those butterflies have so much detail.
Well this is not an entymological study – but still the darks have a specific pattern and to get it all down with out back-runs is a bit of a mission. I wonder when I will be able to get back to this. I have my first workshop tomorrow.
And here is some detail – I want to use this exercise to do a slightly different picture.
And now, for my fair share of abuse (quote the stones), I am off to go and manage the parking at a the music concert at our local park.
