Today is an exciting day....as soon as I am finished cooking I am starting to paint Mary Cassatt's The Bacchante. The sketch is finished. I love the challenge of sketching but for me it's putting the paint down that is the most fun and rewarding. Her dress fascinates me. The color almost matches the symbals she is holding in her hands. The textures of each play nicely next to each other.
I'm just waiting for the chicken and deli roll to finish and then I'll be off to my studio to start painting.
I am simultaneously painting my daughter holding her daughter. Two easals would be ideal!
