Today’s subject has been the most challenging quick paint so far. Finally, stepping away became the best thing to do. It’s been a good lesson of reaching the gamut. My biggest frustration has been finding the right blue to make it pop–a bright blue. So far, ultramarine is too purple, although perfect for some areas in shadow, phthalo is better but still not right. The last blue I could find was cobalt–nope–I think I have a cyan somewhere, that will be my try tomorrow. The paint is now so thick it all blends together anyway. Here’s where I stopped–tomorrow you’ll get to see the finished product and maybe a little something about that skittish bird.

I am a curious artist who enjoys stimulating dialogue, exploring perspective and relationship in all things art, life (human and animal kingdom alike) and my beliefs...I avoid politics when possible. A little background on this blog--I'd been going to an art group for Christians called The Responding and a few months in I decided to respond--yep, I'm a slow one to respond. About the same time my husband wanted me to illustrate some of his children's poetry, which is far from my style. I was praying about it and woke up with the idea to start doodling responses to my morning devotions and hopefully I'd be able to develop a style that could work for poetry. I decided to doodle through My Utmost for His Highest. At first I started with just doodles, then I decided to add a brief thought response on the back of the card. Then one day I thought, "Why keep these to myself, I'll start a Facebook photo page. Eventually it became this blog. What's planned for the future? When I've doodled through the whole book I plan to do a physical show with them. I will also choose some to develop further and the remainder I will. sell them. All proceeds will go to relieve abuse of all kinds. Currently I'm exploring ministries and orginizations that have credible backgrounds to invest in. More details will be made available as I continue on with this venture. I'm trusting God to lead me. View all posts by kmcgheeart
