Saving Grace

"I would like to be remembered as someone who accomplished useful deeds, and who was a kind and loving person. I would like to leave the memory of a human being with a correct attitude and who did her best to help others." ~ Grace Kelly.

"Saving Grace" , 11" X 15" acrylic on Canson XL watercolour paper.

After too many hours to count (ok, about 13) and countless adjustments, a little dab of colour here, smudging there, touching up in another spot, repeat over and over again, I am ready to walk away from this one and call her done.

Although I did not push through to the end with the palette knife and the application of more paint, I am satisfied that I tried something new.

Mine is a rather tame version of this week's complete lesson. No wild dashes and dabs, no long strokes pulled out of the paint.

I saved Grace in the knick of time.

    1. Thanks Sally…another big struggle with these colours that I am not used to working with on a painting. But I admit that I do like the end result.
