I'm a bit of a wimp about colour, but went wild and added some orange, brown and green to the lit areas... I like the result, but feel I really need to stretch more.
Visited a long-time friend yesterday who has been painting and drawing consistently for over 40 years despite some very serious health challenges. Her work is imaginative, thoughtful, colourful, skillful and above-all completely authentic. She paints from her imagination using reference if she needs it and the results are stunning. I was fully humbled at what she's accomplished over the same time that I've been frittering away!
