Little Slices of Life
Another little piece of the "Slice of Life" slowly coming together.
Originally, I was trying to paint a bird in a nest here. You can imagine the tutu was the beginning feathers of a bird, but while erasing and sketching, I saw the head of this ballerina and knew I could not have tried to paint her without a reference photo even if I wanted to. So I just let her develop very slowly guided by intuition.
Look how delicate her fingers look.
All by listening to my inner voice... I think I like painting this way.
