How yummy does that sound,
turquoise and lime, turquoise and lime
kinda rolls off your tongue.
Makes me think of sipping some
tropical cocktail on a warm sunny beach.
Dang this cold winter,
I want spring!!
I decided to paint
a summery scene
(even though my fingers are
using the theme colours for this
weeks Artist's Playroom,
yes, you guessed it
turquoise and lime.
Okay, it's pretty obvious that this poor girl
has had some work done.
Fake tan, nose job and too much filler to the lips
but hey that's the way the young girls go these days
(cough, cough, not my bad painting).
I have to admit, I had heaps of fun
and lots of panics with this piece.
I started by playing with goopy stuff
to make it stand out in places and
ended up wearing most of the goop.
Then the horror movie stage
where I add a bit more paint
She looks really freaky
with the white eye.
I'm sure this put me off because
I had lots of little oopsies,
like when I had two palettes on the go
and way too many brushes in my mouth and hands
and used the wrong colour across her cheek.
Then there was the, it's time to get a new
tube of paint moment, when I squeezed out the paint and
it came out all over my hand,
cos it has an extra hole in the old tube.
After all the fun and games
she turned out kinda okay
Love those lumpy bits of hair and the eye is okay too.
I might refine the hair more, but I sorta like it straggly.
It was fun painting something I don't normally do,
but I think I will steer clear of people.
I think that she looks better from a distance,
I took this shot first but realised you can see my mess.
try this one
Looks better from here, than it does up close.
Now I have my goopy stuff I might do some underwater scenes
and have the fish tails standing out and the coral,
Oooh I can feel some more fun coming on.
While I go and find a scene to paint,
why don't you hop on over to Jenn's
and see what everyone else
has done with
turquoise and lime.
Sorry, had to say it just one more time.
Turquoise and lime (he he).
