Y3 Art Resolutions: #6 Geisha-The final act?

Art Resolutions is the third year of an evolving resolution to elevate every day by looking at art and creativity as a life’s philosophy.

Tonight, Geisha is channeling Matisse. She is in full regalia–make up, parasol, technicolor kimono. Though I used the watercolor simulation for paper in the digital painting program, it never looks the same or as unique as true watercolor. But this is a wonderful way of trying out different combinations and placement of color without destroying the original. Since this is likely to become a larger scale painting or print, this has been a satisfying exercise and I have ideas from all versions.

They are so different and have separate personalities. I like that. Like music, they are different movements of an orchestral suite. Though she is fully executed in color, I still feel there are things to work out. We will see what Geisha whispers this weekend.
