MAKE-UP

I didn't know what to paint and I didn't want to use a photograph. I pulled out some make-up and began. This was a lot of fun and I am going to try another still life using these same objects. I'd like to use fewer strokes. Maybe use some different backgrounds. We'll see.

  5. Linda, our minds certainly go on the same track. I've been scoping out makeup to do a still life, too! I love yours, the decisive brushstrokes - maybe now I'm a little intimidated!

  9. What a fun abstract composition. And the colors are kind of sexy; perfect for the subject matter.I like the way the red lipstick bisects the shadow of the tube to the left to it.
