May Picture complete!

Well this one was FUN!

It took a while to come up with idea…after all bugs and canes don’t normally go together. First I decided I want the bug to be a butterfly. I like butterflies…they are so….pretty and light and carefree-looking. Opposite of me at the moment 🙂

Then I got out my paints (well for this painting I was only using black watercolour) and my pad and…

well, Butterfly Woman just happened. I LOVE when things like this happen. I’m not too sure what I’m painting and then a painting sort of paints itself 🙂 it’s a great feeling and something I want to experience more often as I progress.

There’s a large mirror in front of the table I paint at so I used my face to draw Butterfly Woman’s face. And given that I’m not good at people, I’m actually really proud of how she came out…I still hid her hands and feet though :))

I also really enjoyed this monochrome style of painting…It’s almost like I can concentrate mor eon what I’m doing without the distraction of colour…it’s kind of therapeutic…

well, here she is, the May Painting, the Butterfly Woman:


P.S. did you notice there’s no cane? Well, I warned you that I will not always use all the clues 😛



May sketch update…

Little guy was sick and now I’ve come down with a cold, so no work and no painting got done…In principle I can do it now, because my sweet husband took little guy to visit friends. But I don’t feel that great so I will sip tea, relax and try not to feel guilty about it 🙂

I’m still uncertain what it is that I’m going to draw for the bug and cane thing…The main thing that came to my mind is a butterfly sitting on a branch (aka stick, aka cane 🙂 ), but I might come up with something a bit more adventurous. Like cane=old…we’ll see 🙂
