29 Faces...Day Seven

For Day Seven, I added one more face to my ongoing painting inspired by Klimt.  I always think it's amazing how I see errors once my work is up on the monitor that I just didn't see while working!  My new lady's arm is waaaay off, so I'll definitely be working on that today!
 
 I decided the babe needed angel wings......

 And I started three new "hidden" faces for tomorrow.  Can you see them?  
They're tucked in along the wing.

And here's the way the entire piece looks:
I can't decide which way I like it best- like this:

What do you think?
See ya'll tomorrow for Day Eight!

This is going to be an amazing piece! Plus I love your unique approach to the challenge -- so many faces on one painting, that's really fascinating, and I can definitely see the Klimt influence -- well done! Looking forward to your progress pics as you go along -- be sure to share!

Great work and I know what you mean about seeing things once up on the monitor, I will often scan or photo my work part way through just to see things I might otherwise miss. :) keep up the great work!

I love how your faces art is progressing. You were so inventive to decide to do all 29 of the faces in one big work. Its such a cool project and I can't wait to see what comes next.

I always see my mistakes when I upload, too. Drives me nuts. This is looking great and I love it horizontally

Oh I love those hidden faces! I have missed so much going on here, where have I been? Being a fussy worry wart... haha I love your piece and think that whomever buys this lovely piece can decide how they want to hang it. Well I guess that wouldn't work cause you gotta sign it... hmmmm. I can see the arm is a little out of whack there. I know you'll make it perfect. I guess if I had to pick, I like the landscape version. Which one do YOU like? :)

Looking great - this will be an incredible painting.

You could show it all 4 ways labelled a,b,c,d - so it is easier for us to choose the view. (Or do what I did with my starfish and rotate it on the wall from time to time!)

Wow!!!! I love your progression. Looking forward to tomorrow.

A face a day is quite an energetic challenge but you have a lot of energy and talent so it should be no problem.

Klimt has inspired so many of us and I like your rendition a lot. It looks like a really tough one to pull together but you are doing it!

This is looking wonderful, Steph! Klimt gives us (especially you!) so much food for inspiration. I love the soft colors against the vividness of the royal blue!

Phoenix Peacock said...

what a fabulous Klimt inspired piece! I love the shapes and movement of it.... and that it can be hung in multiple directions.
