Palette & Paint Thursday!

Happy Thursday!  Here I am to share my palette of the week with a bit more of my homage to Klimt inspired by the 29 faces challenge......which to me has felt more like 329 faces!  When I first thought about joining the challenge, I almost didn't because as some of you know, I'm a REALLY slow worker and I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to do it.  But I *almost"*made it, finishing with 24- does that count?  Anyway, with this painting, I decided to fade out parts of the smaller faces because they were just too much.  I'm now working to finish it instead of cramming more (or at least not a lot more;)) faces in!  As I worried, my thoughts on this piece have turned away from the quantity of faces it has, to the quality of faces that I have on there.  I'm just too anal to leave it!  So here it is as I left it today...
 it's sloooowly getting closer to where I want it.....sorry about the lighting here, it was quite overcast today!
and here's my palette for the week, for those of you who don't know, I use a piece of canvas wrapped with plastic as a "do it yourself" disposable palette ;)
Be sure to stop by the Palette & Paint Thursday at the very talented Tracey Potter's blog- definitely look, and why not think about adding your own link, just take a picture of your palette to share- it's lots of fun!
Cheers!
Stephanie

I love what you did with the Klimt-painting. It looks great. I really like all the different faces in there and also that some are almost transparent. Beautiful work!

24 seems like a lot to me...and they are all just awesome! :-)

It's looking wonderful! Even though it was fun, i'm relieved i can lighten up with posting faces for a bit!

Congratulations on completing the 29 faces! This piece is brilliant, you must be so happy with it.

I thought I'd already commented here, but it's not appearing, so I'll say it again,

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

You are so talented Stephanie.

Thanks for playing along with P&P, I very much enjoy seeing your palette.

This is stunning! There is such detail and so much to look at without it being too busy. Love the muted greens and reds and palette too. You have done a fantastic job!
