I’m part of a 4-woman show this June, and my free time has been taken up with preparations. After a disastrous attempt at watercolour on paper, I started experimenting with acrylic on wood.
My first test ended up looking like an Audrey Kawasaki rip-off, but I did like that I didn’t have to do backgrounds. Because I hate doing backgrounds. Because I suck at doing backgrounds hahahaha.
Here’s a really crappy camera phone work-in-progress photo of Circe, the ringmaster of my circus.
This is the largest I’ve ever gone. I usually work with A4-sized paper. Occasionally, A3, but this is me being overly ambitious hahaha! It’s 2.6′ x 4′! I still feel overwhelmed by the size of the wood panels, but I am pretty damn proud of myself. I thought I’d have it finished by Sunday, but it turns out I not only suck at backgrounds, I also suck at drawing pigs.
I will now go back to being on blogging hiatus. Still need to finish this piece plus five more by 2nd week of June.
