|Trish showed us some of her journals.|
She had already drawn her two women subjects at a table. She started her painting with seemingly broad, random strokes. She loves painting people’s hair, coming from a background of hair stylists. She talked about how brushstrokes are important, and can make a difference in how a painting turns out. She used a lot of water; she likes to let the paint mix on the page. Trish feels a freedom with the backgrounds because she doesn’t care if it’s perfect. She is most interested in getting faces and expressions on faces like she wants them – to “capture the moment”.
|This unfinished painting is of Trish's two daughters "sharing a moment".|
|Trish worked on her painting upside down - she felt it needed more work in the upper left hand corner (lower right here)|
|Once she turned the painting right side up, Trish was much happier with it.|
|Above are two of Trish's works - note the use of words in each.|
