I wanted to take a little time this afternoon and share with you my progress on my painting of “Dagmar” for the W.V. Division of Culture’s Historic Figures Exhibit. See the previous post for more information about my subject! I had a little trouble getting past the background. It really looked pretty muddy there for a while, but I pressed on, and now I like it. Those initial painting stages can be a horrifying experience sometimes. “Oh, God, why is it so YELLOW???!!”, that sort of thing.
My fans ask me, nay, beg me for more pics of works as they progress, so in the interest of magnanimous Christmas cheer, I give you this report on how the sausage gets made here at Cup O Swank. My art is quite similar to sausage, really. I aim for good taste in the finished product, but things usually look pretty tacky midway. Enjoy!
Until next time! More soon!
