Bottom: Under drawing for a new oil on canvas 36x36 to be titled "The Big Wave"
The sunflowers painting was inspired by my garden and the quintessential painting by Van Gogh. The patterned background was influenced by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Both Van Gogh and Kusama's artwork can be seen among "art I love" that I've pinned on Pinterest.com here: http://pinterest.com/lucyawilson/art-i-love/
After pinning a lot of art on pinterest.com and now on art.sy I realized I really like figurative painting hence the choice for my next big painting "The Big Wave." I was also influenced by a great photo of high surf in Hawaii for the choice of subject.

Four pictures above are examples of how to draw people. That is, if you don't want them to look like themselves! Top photo of "High School Girl," does not resemble the model. Bottom three sketches of a Leonardo Da Vinci drawing, look like three different girls. Fortunately someone invented the camera.
