today i am being a fauve. this is a copy i just did of georges rouault's 'head of a woman' 1939. rouault, was a french painter who showed with the fauves, but i think he was not actually considered a fauve. so maybe i am altering art history here. anyway, i love the faces he paints. gives me inspiration.

what is this? painting in the snow. my opus tutor, james hunting (http://www.jameshunting.com), likes me to make things big and loose. so here it is big and loose painting in the snow. it's fun to try! i am pretty sure he is going to tell me now to stitch it. so i will do that and show you in a future post.

stitching on paper - a first for me. this is part of an opus exercise, which combines making marks on paper and then stitching on it. i coated the paper with matte medium to give it some durability. i like the feel of stitching on paper.
