Finally painting again!
This time I am focusing on a more conceptual piece… It might seem a bit weird at the beginning, but you just have to pay attention to the details in order to understand the whole idea behind this work. Every little thing that’s portrayed has a meaning and a reason to be there, I’m not painting this one for the sake of beauty. The fact that I am using colors –yes, I know, I’m not doing a black and white piece, what’s wrong with me?!– is no coincidence. Ever wondered what a purple or a black rose mean? Have you ever read The Raven by Poe? If you want to get the gist of this piece, it is mandatory to know those things! I am not getting into much detail explaining the concept behind it all because, firstly, it’s way too personal for me to put it down in words, and secondly, I’d rather let you draw your own conclusions. I have a long way to go, and I am already dreading painting the girl’s skin and the background… Actually, I just noticed that I still have to finish some details of the sketch! Oh well...
This is what I have so far:
The title of this piece is inspired by Julia Stone’s “The line that ties me” song:
There aren’t many pictures about my weekend this time. That’s because there are only so many pictures you can take of your own college notes. And well, because the rest of the pictures that I do have are not blog material (meaning that they’re not decent enough to keep my -and other’s- reputation intact).
I didn’t paint much this week; I kind of finished the Khaleesi painting, and I say kind of finished because when I thought I was done with it I began to get annoyed at different parts of it… So it’s not really done until I manage to stop Khaleesi from haunting me.
Which leads me to… Remember the “where are my dragons” scene from season 2 of Game of Thrones? Well, one of my beloved friends thought it was funny to hide my notes when I wasn’t around (suicidal act; yes, I know). When I asked “where are my notes” in a very angry way, the guys thought it was hilarious (ha, ha) and decided to call me Khaleesi and “mother of notes” until they forget about it, which I’m afraid is not going to be any time soon…
Anyway, here are some pictures from both my week and weekend:
PS. Just came from the cinema and watched Side Effects; Rooney Mara is amazing in it. Go watch it!
