Masai update III
I've starting working on the bead necklace for this piece, trying to get at least some base colours and shapes down then defining them.
Tedious detail work is the making or breaking of many drawings for a lot of artists. Its easy to lose interest in broad stretches of repetitious work. To make it easier, I break it down into small sections instead of contemplating the whole piece. So once the base values are in, I take perhaps just one colour section of the necklace and complete that then move on to the next. It gives me an easily achieved goal and helps things move forward.
Kim Barker of.Top Artists Directory has kindly featured me in Featured Artist of the Week, highlighting the fun, but slightly sinister, painting of the child/clown that I completed the other week. Thank you Kim.
