July 14 at 4:31 PMHi there. I am still working on the Unforgettable Faces Project. I have been busy but this face called to me to finish. I had her started in my studio almost a year ago. I had to stop this project to go to Canada.
I love the cultural identity that still flourishes here in Ecuador. They wear it with pride and joy. I love everything about it. I love the jewlery, the fabrics and the heart.
I work with a little bit of OCD, and it works for me. I don't have a lot of unfinished projects. I have a very organized studio, and I can find all my supplies within a few moments. I would go nuts if it wasn't this way. Because of it, I get lots done and there are no distractions when I need to start new projects.
Although this part does not effect my whole life, just the art side. I have one project that has been on my easel for several years, and I think I have finally figured out how to solve it..... But it is on a huge canvas.... so in a while.
This painting, like all the paintings from my Unforgettable Faces Project, is from my own photo reference. It is painted on Canson mixed media, my gesso recipe, my own coloring book (torn drawings from there) a few old books and music scores, Dr. PH Martin bombay ink, and Winsor and Newton Watercolor markers.
