My Painting #13 - Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days - January 2014 Challenge
Here is my painting for Day #13 of Leslie Saeta's painting challenge. My goodness, I can't believe that we are almost two weeks into this challenge.
For this second week, I am having a lot of fun studying and interpreting various pieces created by Picasso. I haven't quite figured out my theme for week three, yet. But I do have a few things in mind.
For today's painting, I needed to reach into my stash from previous work because I won't have time to paint today.
With that being said, my painting for today is from a couple years ago. At that time, my daughter had her wisdom teeth removed and she was recovering. Also during that time frame, I was busy practicing with my new love of Vase Faces!
One time when I looked at my daughter during her recovery, with her little puffy cheeks - to put a smile on her face - I said something like "You look like a little bud vase" - then I had a 'light bulb' idea. I told her I would paint a special Vase Face just for her.
I added her favorite flower, hydrangeas using her favorite color - purple, and a Picasso style face, plus if you look close you will see a yellow highlight on the cheek. (Due to her teeth being removed my daughter had a very slight yellowish highlight on her cheek.) If I'm not mistaken, this painting was finished using watercolor pencils and watercolors. I don't know if I applied the watercolor correctly, but this is how it turned out.
I must tell you, she did get a kick out of this painting! And it did put a smile on her face - Mission Accomplished.
Hope you enjoy today's painting.
Happy Painting! Cheers! and ... Break a Bristle.
