Welcome to the weekend. Welcome to Saturday art linky


What have you been up this past week? Have you done anything special? Or not quite that special? Have you created something? Yes, then tell me about it and link up below, so I can have a look.

For me it was really a totally normal week. Business as usual with a side of a lovely dinner with friends on Wednesday, after Juno was a bust here in northern NJ. But, most days this week I really wanted to get home. As early as possible to have time to work on my image. I can tell you, it has been a real long time, kind of as long as way back to almost being a teenager, that I felt that strongly about finishing a picture. Back then I couldn’t wait to get home from school to continue painting. Seems almost like a lifetime ago that I smelled the oil colors. I enjoyed painting a lot.

Today I prefer to create my images digitally. First with my camera and then in Photoshop. And in the case below, believe me, I did a lot of painting.

It almost felt like the old days.

Minus the smell and the stains.

*update* I have now looked at this picture on different monitors (2nd monitor, laptop) and feel the need to note that e.g. her lips are a perfect match to the reds on the bottom right. Because on another monitor they looked a lot more pink. Shows you how important it is to calibrate your monitor, like I do with my main desktop one, if you work with colors digitally. Hope you still like it. Somewhat.
