Unmasking the Mask!

I am removing the masking as I work my way down the painting. Unmasking the to speak. I seem to mask way too many places and end up covering most of them as I paint!
I have had moments of panic, well...that may be a little dramatic...but I did have a very strong urge to call my former instructor and ask for her help.
I love her but I didn't call and am very pleased with myself that I am pulling this one off.
This will be finished in a couple of days and then I will have the next one on paper by the weekend. I will post the final painting when it is ready!

Musical Mask Progress

Choosing the right colors for the background is always stressful for me.
These will definitely be adjusted but this is the progress I've made so far.

Otherwise I am enjoying this painting.

Thanks for stopping by!

Venetian Mask

I'm having a lot of fun with this Venetian Mask. I was struggling with the golds being bland and boring until I added the Alizarin Crimson....Now it sings!

Venetian Masks

This is the line art for the first of the series of Venetian Masks.
I have included notes from one of the music books I use in handbell choir. I love these masks!
