Ophelia WIP/Steps so far... by ChelseaHantken Ophelia WIP/Steps so far... by ChelseaHantken
Why is it that I perform my best when I'm procrastinating? Pleased with my sketch & cannot wait to paint her! I am supposed to be creating some pieces for two themed exhibitions coming up in the next two months, but fan art is really hard to get motivated about. I also have my first solo exhibition booked in for Jan-Feb 2015! Ages away, but I'm hoping by then I'll have lots of new artwork to share. I don't really plan on sharing the ones I want to have in my exhibition so things might be quiet here for a while, but I'll pop in to visit my friend's pages now and again! :) :hug:

Found this beautiful stock photo and couldn't help but start buzzing with ideas: 13-melissa-salvatore.deviantar….

Finished: Ophelia by ChelseaHantken

Beautiful Chelsea, I am sure by the time it is needed your wonderful skills will set to work
and before you know it you will have a bunch of masterpieces before you.
Don't worry about it, relax and enjoy your work and all will be fine. :)

Glad I could help my friend, worrying only makes things seem worse than they really are. :)
It's funny how we can set out to do a masterpiece and get nothing done, and then the next day
have a fool around and come up with a masterpiece.
That is because you are approaching your work in a more relaxed and carefree way.
Having fun while you work seems to be the one ingredient that we forget to add just when we need it most.

Here is a little crazy video that you may have already seen but will bring a smile either way, and is a good reminder
when we embark on a new project.
