Inspiration Results – October 17

Posted by lori . 14 Comments


The plan at the beginning of 2013 was that every Monday, I would post a painting “inspiration.” Every Thursday, I would post how I interpreted the inspiration. I decided to do this to keep myself painting, to strengthen how I go from an idea to a painting, and to give myself permission to play and try new things. Because I’m adjusting to a new work schedule, that plan has changed a bit. I’m still taking an “inspiration” and translating it into a painting, but the process is much more step-by-step.

For the rest of year, I’m taking my inspiration from the great ideas you sent me. The first inspiration is AUTUMN. Here’s how she looks so far.

Autumn Girl 4

She may not look much different from how she looked on Monday, but I’ve worked on her quite a bit. This is the point where I start making her hair and clothing and face. I paint, and then I change my mind. I paint, and then I change my mind. I keep fussing with her…sometimes a short process, sometimes a long process…until I think it’s okay.
