Officially back from hiatus

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 15, 2014, 7:21 PM

Wow! So I've been in a big art rut for quite some time now. I didn't realize it, but I went from checking DA every day to just not really caring about anything to do with art. Sometimes I just get sick of art and do that, but I always come back. And here I am about 3 months later finally free of artist block!

The strangest thing got me off the hump, so do expect to see some pretty drastic subject matter changes. I am still finishing up portrait commissions that I had previously engaged to, but will be spending my time after and in between that working on these new ideas! I am actually sitting down to paint right now, so I should have something to show for it very soon. :)

I hope you all had a great holiday and new year. I'll be working on catching up on comments too - I have something like 180 feedback messages to go through o_o. I look forward to catching up with everyone! ;)

Wow, you have amazing portraiture skills, and love the style you use. The one of Maria Amanda (Sun-kissed) is great. :clap::beer:

Thank you so much!! I have a lot of trouble working pale because I just don't like the flat colors. I'm always trying to bronze things up..unless I'm working pinkish tones. If I recall this painting started out WAY too pink, and I couldn't stand it - so I added a ton of glazes instead of having to remix and repaint all the tones. It was an interesting effect because I added lots of yellow glazes and then had to go back in with pink glazes. But, I really like how it turned out. In person it is probably one of the most depthful pieces I have. One of these days, I'm going to work on a pale subject and try to keep accuracy in color - as painful as that may be! haha
