I’m recovering from some kind of flu and thought it would be good to let you see another one of my “family commission”. This time I’m going to show you a present made for my mum, the constant gardener of our home. I chose wood and went for unprimed surface, well, I know now that I hate it… it sucks up color and drives you mad so beware of unprimed wood! I have to say I HAD primed one side but then opted for the other because it looked better (I know, I know). Half way I thought I was going to start again, covering everything with a thick layer of white paint and act as if it was paper but then choosing wood would have been pointless and I kept going until I won 🙂
At this point I thought I was going to cover everything up because the skin color and the wood color were THE SAME hue, man! I wouldn’t have done it I had wanted to!
And this is it, I really wish I had more time to paint. I feel at easy only when I’m painting and covering myself in blotches of color.
On a side note: I started a little series of “drawn Kokeshi dolls” and a triptych with a theme similar to Biologica.
