After spending some frustrated time yesterday trying to paint hands, I just couldn't let it alone, I had to have another go. So I went back to the easel today and made some adjustments.
These look much more like hands to me.
After working on the hands I decided it was time to start tackling the pattern on the lady's gown. This really had me really apprehensive because I just didn't know how it was going to approach it, let alone wonder how it would turn out. Here are my efforts so far.
A few splodges of colour here and there doesn't look too crash hot but when you stand back...it actually looks o.k.
I had forgotten how much I love painting, time just disappeared today.
