Newest Painting - Constance

This little gal is based on a sketch I did years ago. I've wanted to put her on canvas for a while...and here she is. I kind of love her sweet shyness.

This painting is 10" x 10" on a gallery wrapped canvas. She's available in MY ETSY SHOP now.

I haven't been sketching and doodling as much in my Bullet Journal because I've been doing more of that in my sketchbook in preparation for new paintings. Stay tuned for those. But I do always find time for lettering.

This week's To Do List. I kind of revisited an older GO TO lettering style (there's a quick tutorial on it here) and added different flourishes to each day.

Summer - The Process

Here are my WIP pics of this painting...

 It all starts with a sketch
 The drawing with chalk on a black gessoed wood cradleboard
 First coat of paint on the background
 First coat on the face
 This is always the step where I doubt the painting is going to "work". I call this the "Ugly Phase".
 You can see that the face has one coat except for that right eye--the second coat makes a huge difference. 
 Almost done. She just needs a few accents and the chalk to be wiped off.
Almost done. I will add a few more accents after this.
And the finished painting!
