TGIF. That is exactly what I was thinking last week, as well – right before I jumped on a plane to Hamburg. The trip was too short – as always – though I loved seeing everyone. After I came back quite late on Monday, Tuesday started early again at the office. Though it was a short week for me with only 4 days, it felt like forever.
As you might remember, I told you last week about me getting back into painting. I love it – it calms me down to mix the colors and then melt them together on the canvas without really knowing where it will take me or what the final product will look like. I got inspired by a digital drawing by @mersedova (instagram), and decided I want a Baywatch-like woman in my house, too. I think there is something incredible about the picture she drew – it’s both sexy and showcasing an empowering, self-loving and independent woman. Exactly what I like! So here is my final version of it – fully painted with palette-knifes and thick acrylic paints. I don’t use brushes and try to stay away from details as much as possible. Also, this is the first time I “painted” a face. I usually leave the face blank because 1) I am no good at them and 2) faces often define emotions. I want my viewers to be able to place their own emotion and feelings into a painting without being pre-stimulated by a facial expression. Nevertheless, this woman surely needed one – otherwise it would have been “incomplete” – or so I feel. What do you think of the painting? I’d love to hear opinions!
And now – off to jumping into the weekend (and studying, again…) xo
