Progress on Beauty

Just an update to show this week's progress on my 'Beauty' mixed media painting. It's not finished yet, but I did get a lot done. And just a note--the background is not actually the color of blue that it appears to be in the photo. It's actually turquoise blue. I took this photo with my iPhone and it's never 100% great or accurate with photos that are taken indoors. But oh well.

Beauty in Progress Mixed Media

I actually hated this painting a little ways into it. I almost gave up on it. But then I got some ideas going in my head and just kept plugging away at it--mostly because I love the drawing part of it and I didn't want to see it wasted! So even though I still don't love it, I don't quite hate it anymore. And I am going to see it through to the it or not. :) After all, this is about getting outside of my comfort zone--learning new things and trying new techniques, right?! I can't grow if I don't try new things, so I must keep going! The next photo I post will likely be the finished product (I hope), so stay tuned!
