One of the things I love so much about my studio practice is the ability to switch back and forth from large, expansive, and speed driven work to a meditative slow practice. Sometimes the two even meld in one piece as well.
Here's the illustrated update on the progress of the latest home portrait:
|cobble stones going into the driveway|
|a different type of roof went on to the house from the original plan, but it feels right|
|the stone entry wanted to be french knotted (that's only the beginning of all the knots in this piece!)|
|windows wanted to be filled with glass (or shiny thread)|
|there's a dark blue trim around the door that looks black in this photo|
|the start of front yard bushes and walkway|
|I contemplated leaving the round bushes as negative space|
|but the french knots wanted to take up residence there in the end|
More updates soon!
