I painted her yesterday, and I painted her FAST, which is why I thought it appropriate to enter her into this week's Illustration Friday challenge.
Painting her was very different and tactile! Even the molding paste, I applied with my fingers, as well as some of the paint. The face just happened very fast and by the joy I was feeling as she emerged, I could tell that I was painting her from deep inside.
That's what I love about painting, not when I plan something out to the smallest detail, not when it looks perfect in the end, not when others like it, but when it expresses that creative part deep within. She's gritty, she's asymmetrical, she's almost a little scary and I LOVE her!
