There is no art without observing. No learning either. Observing is an essential key for understanding and improving a skill. I am like a child…I look around (mainly on the net or in books) and find interesting subjects to observe. Then I model, I try, experiment…and go further…as the toddler does, when feeling more secure…
I picked a model from flowrsinherhair’s blog http://www.flowrsinherhair.co.za/ and decided to give it a go. This lovely girl looks nothing like hers, however I’m very happy with the end result!
What I learned through this exercise: Looking behind what I see, further than the lines or the character, to see all the colors that make such perfect blend… but not only! painting the soul is another pair of brush!!!
