This is my attempt at ‘interactive’ art. What I mean is, I’d really like your input on these 3 paintings. I’ve asked my mother & husband, but Mom is always incredibly supportive and Hubster just nods his head. Not the candor I’m looking for.
If you missed why I’m painting African American angels, you can read about it here.
Now, this is what I need your input on.
- Should I get rid of the daisies? It was one of those “seemed like a good idea at the time.”
- If I keep the daisies, should the petals be detailed more. You’ll see what I mean on the Blackberry #2.
- Do the white highlights on her face look funny?
See how the daisies are more defined? Does this look better than the daisies in the first?
Again – should I take the daisy out altogether? Or leave it in as is? Or add the turquoise details like on the first 2.
You can see that I drive myself nuts (and anyone around me). It’s so much easier when I paint for someone else and they give their stamp of approval.
Hubster tells me I act like these are the only angels I’ll ever paint. And they’re not, of course. I’m moving on to fairies and princesses this week.
That’s why I’m questioning the daisies. I feel like they’d be more appropriate for fairies. I guess I can Photoshop them out. Of course, I have to learn how to do that first . . . ugh.
I’d really, really love to hear your ideas & comments. Really!
These little black angel girls will be reproduced – my first reproductions – which is probably why I’m in such a quandry.
Thanks so much for your ‘interaction’! I’m linking up to the crafty gals. Have fun checking out what everyone is doing for spring.
