Although the lovely weather keeps dragging me outside to sniff the roses….
But I do have some painting to get on with, and time is pressing. Soon it will be taking in day for Holmfirth Artweek, I am painting and making frantically, it is a wonder any meals get made at the moment. To make matters worse the painting that I am working on at the moment is being a little difficult, some thing is wrong with the proportions of the little girl, so I sit and look at it and then get up, go away and come back again, then I turn it upside down, (trick I learnt at art college, you can also look at your painting in a mirror, it helps you to see it with a fresh eye) what do you think?
I know the mother seems to have an arm missing, but that has been dealt with since taking this photo. Do you think I should have the girl sitting down more and therefore lengthen her back or is it her hand that is too small or her arm too long, heeeeelp!
Think I’ll go and sniff more roses.
