Pre-prep for Music & Art night

I don't know about you guys, but I always like to see what goes on behind the scenes. So, I thought that I would let you see my process. I'm the type of person that has to visualize what I'm going to do before I paint it. I try to figure out what colors I'm going to use, how big I want go, and what overall theme I want to use. I knew that I wanted to paint a GUY (for all those people who think all I paint are girls) and I wanted to incorporate the Music & Art Theme, I also wanted it to be Big,Bold, and Bright! So this is what I came up with....

The theme I decided to go with is Music is Art. ( Thanks to my husband...sometimes he has good I cant wait until you see the finish piece, here are some pics of me sketching and Yes, I am doing it on my living room floor..It was a pretty big canvas 15x11. Which is big for me I usually paint on 10x10 and 12x12. Hopefully I'll be able to post the pics from that in a few days.

Hey Trena!
So fun to see you making big art in your living room. I've been thinking about getting some big canvases and going for it. Look forward to seeing him in color.
Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving!
