Paint Party Friday #33

A.k.a: "the week I was not happy with the results" or "Darn, this wasn´t what I was expecting" or "Shoot. This needs to be sanded to start again" or ... well, you get the idea.
First: the candy box that I strated in June and painted in oils twice. This is the third version and still too bright. I don´t mind bright. I do mind the white that seems to show through although it shouldn´t.
Second: I painted Julia´s hair with the remaining oils. The background shows too much as I hadn´t gessoed where the hair was going, only the face.

Third: the only really new work. I like the bigger house as it is painted just like Tati´s set. I´m ok with the middle one. The one on the right will be sanded and painted again in different colours. They are all wips. Need a second hand in base colours and then I will start playing with stencils. Not real paint but fun anyway. My daughter needed a companion to play ball so she drew her own with water on the wall she uses to practice.

I like all your work. Sometimes we aren't always satisfied with what we paint but others may not feel the same and I do like your creations, as well as your daughter's. Tee hee Have a great weekend.

I may just start drawing companions on walls too. maybe I won't look so weird muttering to myself.

I like what you have done. But I totally get it when the picture in your head doesn't match the project in front of you.

I've got about 88 of those staring at me right now. LOL!

LOL - love your daughter's companion!

I'm having a challenge with creations that look unlike my mind's eye as well.

Patience and persistence I tell myself or try something new until I want to look at the other again.

Big hugs coming your way Paula - cos I know that whatever others say, if the project doesn't match our thoughts & ideas we tend to be less than satisfied.

Have a lovely weekend.

I actually think everything looks good but I know that feeling of not being happy with what you've done. Don't give up. You'll get it just right.

i like that your daughter is able to create her own playmate.
All of us artists have issues with accepting what we do. Even my best work, if i look, i see something to be improved or a flaw...it is the habbit of an artist.

I love how you passed your creativity to your daughter. What a dear!

One of my artforms this year is also bird houses. I make them into writer's homes by gluing words/pages of old books on them.

I am on the lookout whenever I go to thrift stores or used book sales. Its become something of an addiction! LOL. And I have even sold some! YAY!

Anyway, hang in there with the pieces that aren't completely satisfying. I know that feeling all too well.

You work on so many different kinds of painting projects. I admire how you turn your creative side to whatever you happen to be working on.
