Sarah Work in Progress 10 and 11

Sarah Work in Progress10

I don't know if other artist feel exuberant when they get close to being done, but I am soooo excited. So far I am only one week behind the self imposed schedule and that with having to deal with my frozen shoulder. Not too bad ~

Sarah Head Shot Work in Progess11

I will have to put the painting aside now, so that I can come back to it with a fresh look and catch all the stuff I have missed. Of course the temptation is always there to rush to the end, but I have learned it's best to take it easy. With this painting there are a lot of ying and yang things going on.

Texture against smooth surface, bright against dark, highly detailed against loosely handled, etc. I still have to put the strings on, but the painting has to be completely dry first. I'll let you know later why.
