'The Snow Walker' and loved it! The scenery is spectacular. It is about a bush pilot who is asked to fly a sick inuit girl to a hospital, but the plane crashes. They are left to fend for themselves in the middle of nowhere.
I was sketching during this movie, and decided to do a painting based on the girl. Now it has been 4 months since I painted a figure. Any new readers to my blog probably think I only do whimsical ACEOs since that is what I have been showing lately. I have been in a very long slump, and have no idea how it started or why. I guess I let myself be discouraged, and then as the weeks, then months went by, it got easier not to do it.
So after the movie, I got out a wood panel, drew out my idea, and woodburned it. Of course after having done so, I see the small errors. Oh well, I'm a bit rusty, so I will continue and see what happens.
This shows what my paintings look like before the fun stuff. I have no idea where I will go with it, I will probably simplify the background for now. I hope to have this done by tomorrow night.
It has been way too long since I painted, and it's time to get back to what I love to do best.
