Finshed I think!


















There comes a time in a project where you don't know what else to do so I guess you need to say its done. I really learned a lot doing this painting. I am better at mixing colors, learned what colors looked crappy with a blue background an how to fix mistakes. I look forward to the painting class I am taking next month since I know I will learn so much more. Now I am ready to work on something different. I made a little movie with all the stills leading up to the finish.



I would appreciate any comments and constructive criticism about my painting. I am trying to learn so if you see anything you'd like to point out leave a comment or send me an email.

Hi Kate, I found your link via Olivia.

I have no criticisms to offer - the painting is beautiful and does have a folk artiness to it, which I just love. Really enjoyed seeing your creative process too. The colours you chose are a gentle and feminine background for the strong woman you have painted. Is she you?

Happy Birthday!!!! I hope you're having a wonderful day.

Your painting is beautiful. No criticism. I think you're just getting better and better with every painting/journal page.

Happy Birthday Kate! I love your painting.......very folk art like in appearance...a gentleness to her! I'm not sure what kind of critique to give apart from maybe giving a bit more of a contrast under the chin to show the separation?? Other than that she's lovely!

love, violette
