I drove over to Deb's Thursday morning - a beautiful drive in sunny, warm weather - to paint with Deb and Sharon. I admit, we spent more time talking (catching up) and having the nice lunch Deb provided than we did actually painting. And I didn't have anything planned. So did this little study for another caw girl painting. Just working on color choices and such to see if I want to paint this one larger. I'm thinking I'll leave the Caw Girls with white or pale backgrounds so they stand out. I like that and I don't really want to place them in any recognizable background situation. I will work on this a bit more, adding to her shadow and touching some areas in the face but I like the unfinished look of her face now. The crow's claws/talons need to be larger and longer, too.
Ordered some Daniel Smith paints (mostly refills for ones running low) and got those in yesterday. A new one = Shadow Violet that Carol Carter uses. Have to try it. Going to make another order from Cheap Joe's today. I'm stocking up on things for the spring Myrna Wacknov workshop I'm taking this April!! Talk about something totally different :)
Have a wonderful weekend. We are in the path of some serious storms coming. I hope it doesn't blow up a tornado. I can't imagine what those people in Missouri, Illinois and southwestern Kentucky are going through right now after the Feb. 29th twisters hit so many towns.
