Nap Time #3 (in progress)

Okay, this isn’t really only the third painting session, but I didn’t dare show you all the previous two or three before this! Frightening! For literally 15 painting hours, I went backwards. Once again, I seemed to forget everything I learned. I’m starting to question the whole inspiration thing. Every successfull artist I’ve ever read about says you have to work even if you don’t “feel like it”, but it seems like every time I try that, I screw everything up! The skin tone has gone from yellow, to orange to purple and back again! But, yesterday, I “felt like” painting, and everything I knew came flooding back to me. It was like I was working from instinct instead of thinking about it. Anyways, I’m pretty happy with the results. I still need to tweak some values and richen up the skin tone a tad, but I’m feeling positive about it again.
As always, constructive criticism is welcome, so feel free to comment.

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
