What’s on the Easel: 2

We left it here do you recall?

There was a lot amiss with it – the face bothered me…..  The charcoal lines indicate where changes needed to be made

So, of course, she got worse

Before she got better – though still looking a little ghostly

There’s lots happening around her too – can you see it?  The other half of the painting barely got touched thoughhdr

The water is still there, but it’s changing…….  I wonder what will happen next…..

  1. I am really impressed how you are able to change depths and light in your paintings, Pauline.
    The eyes are much more clear and show a lightness of a gentle spirit. Her hair seems defiant, so she has the spirit of a caring but decisive person. ❤ 😊

  2. Her face evokes a feeling of wistfulness for me. What is she thinking about? Ah. I have a question: as a writer and lover of words, when you write words on the canvas are they used for inspiration? As a guide? Impetus? Where do they come from? If you don’t mind me asking, of course.

  3. Um, nice, Pauline. I’m still going with my theme of hope. The water is much more blue and crystalline. The girl looks wistful too. Thinking of better things to come?

  4. Hmmm..someone with trouble in her background has gone to paradise (okay a tropical island), found peace, and is getting ready to return to life…

  5. It’s a contrast in dark and light. Perhaps an inner struggle looking for the way forward? I love the sweep of the hair, the soothing colors in the background, and wonder where it will lead. These are so much fun, Pauline.

  6. I love her black dress, (I think it’s a dress), with all of the little sparkly in it. It makes me think she’s quite sophisticated but yet a very down-to-earth woman, comfortable in her own skin. To me, it’s her hair that gives her away with a look of elegance and yet a casual air about her- like she doesn’t really care what anyone else thinks about her. I love it!
