A Work in Progress

Standard

work-in-progress-013

This is something I have been working on for a couple of months.  It was a sketch in my art journal that I thought might make an interesting painting.  It is a long way from being finished, but thought I would share it anyway.  Its quite a large canvas for me – 48″ x 36″.  I don’t usually like to use this size canvas, but it was all I had when I decided to start painting – so here it is.  I need help on balancing the subject between the sides of the canvas which are now just blank sky and a little water down at the bottom.  I was thinking of calling it “Nyx” after the greek goddess of the night.  Of course I can see many things that need to be worked on. 

I am traveling to Montana on Thursday of this week to see my new grandson.  A long awaited event!  When I return perhaps someone will give me some pointers on where to go with this painting — I do feel a little bit stuck with it and can’t seem to get going, mainly because I don’t know what to do next, except maybe give her some hair!
