5.11.2010>>>  I am working on a new idea... 


I have decided to paint Violet again- this time at her beloved window. 


I'm starting with the layout of the room.  


I changed the color of the carpet.  Made it more muted with blue grays and white. (The yellow was still wet.) I also began working on the window sill (which still has a ways to go) and I change the blue on the inner side of the window to a lighter blue to show the light coming in.  I also started the pains in the glass though I am not sure I like how the line in the middle looks crooked. 


I worked on the window sill by adding white and making it a bit wider.  I also added white to the trim near the floor and a darker line for a shadow.


6.02.2010 (Happy birthday Dad!)

I made the sill even wider and started to add the pains in the glass.  There are a lot of parallel lines to deal with here. They may end up causing my head to spin...ahhh...


I started adding the blinds today.  I am trying to show the light peaking through at each slat which requires a gradation on each stripe.


I am still blocking in the shapes of the blinds.  I will have to go back and fine tune the colors once I get all the shapes in though.


I added more definition to the shades and I also added the brick and shutter on the right outside of the glass and began painting the yellow bad dog sign on the left.  Also, at the bottom I added some orange in the shadow which really pops with blue, its compliment.  


I added some white to the blinds.  I also started working on painting the tree and the street outside the window. 


I added Violet, her bed, and her ball today!


I added Violet's bone today.  It often gets stuck to the carpet so it sticks up in the air.  I also started adding the blind strings.


I added more blind strings today.


I decided that I needed to work on unifying the color and shading of the blinds so I am repainting each line.  Goodbye- blind strings!


I added the blind strings back.  Almost finished...
