Lulu - Hilton Head 2012
4 x 4
oil on board
This is Lulu! Here is Wanda's write up...
I thought it would be fun to show you how I begin my painting process. I start with a rough sketch...and I do mean rough. I am not concerned with anything other than relationships. The relationship between the nose, mouth, eyes, etc. I often don't finish the sketch...I just want to make sure I know where everything goes. Here I can see that the mouth is not angled enough and I make a mental note to correct that when I paint. I am anxious to start painting but know that this step will save me much frustration.
And below is the mug shot of Lulu that I painted last year! She was the second mug to be painted and I remember wiping the board twice before I finished.
