More of the Process

Tattoo details. 
My poor squinting eyes- why do I paint so small?  
But I actually now paint a little bigger than I use to. I use to paint on 8”x10” paper , then on 9”x12” - and they are growing- Now I paint on 12”x16” paper. But never larger than that. Why? Because now it fits perfectly to the edges on my big oversized Epson scanner. Any larger and I couldn’t scan my art into my computer! 
So until I get a larger scanner- 12x16 it is


the final art:

My Process

Sharing a bit of my process today. 
I’m a color worrier. And committing to a color combo gives me anxiety. Picking colors does not seem to come easy for me. I spend a lot of time staring at a pencil sketch thinking about the right colors to paint. So often I will print out my sketch and do quick little color wash plans - like the one here- quick washes of gouache on laser prints. This one was the 6th one I did before i decided these were the colors this one would be.  Then- I start with the eyes. 
Stay tuned and I will post the final art when done this week.
