Green Man - WIP Forever??

Green Man, had a fun time "Starting" this painting in August, OMG, it's been that long, and it's been a long time since I've had time to paint. See it all began.... when I went to WORK, I received a offer to go back to work as project manager and it is wonderful, but now I have no real time to paint. :-( bummer.
It's still a wip, since I have more leaves to define and the top leaves need to be soften but hey! I wanted to post something. :-) The fun part of this painting was I basically threw the paint wet/wet on it and with a small sea sponge started pulling out the color for the eyes, nose, mouth and then let dry. Then I went in and started doing the negative/positive painting. It's got a bit to go before I'm done but so far I'm good about it.

Thanks for looking.
Have a Wonderful Christmas!


  1. Sheila, this is so wonderful! I love the subject and the colors are my favorites too. I can't wait to see it finished. Have a fabulous holiday season!

  2. It's good to see you back in the blogsphere, Sheila! I haven't posted in months, either, and have not painted since September. I did take a drawing class, so have been doing some art, at least. I love the negative effect of the leaves on his chin as well as the colors on your green man and look forward to seeing the finished product.

  3. Welcome back and Happy New Year...
