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!

  1. I think this is a beautiful piece with loads of mystery and the title “Nyx”. seems perfect. My only suggestions would be to research Greek mythology and also to journal asking the painting what is next…the image, the water, sky? I usually allow 10 min. of constant writing until something seems clear. Enjoy your trip to Montana and loving this new child!
