Beautiful art that resonates in the soul

Contemporary Abstract Painter Paulette Insall's paintings come from her heart....expressing emotion as a visual language, using pure color and expressive marks to connect and communicate. Her abstract art emits a special light and magic that is both spiritual and moving.

She's on the canvas!

Well I decided to go ahead and put her on the canvas. Tried a little bit of a different way than what I usually do and I think it worked quite well. Yea! You'll probably notice that she's a mirror image now and that comes from the way I transferred her. I drew her on tracing paper with a regular pencil, then I flipped over the drawing and used a bone folder and burnished the drawing onto the canvas. It worked fabulously!!!


Then I proceeded to go over my transfer with pencil and then did all the shading....something else different from the way I usually go about the process. Trying to stretch myself a little more and shake things up a bit....gotta keep things fresh, right? :D





And here's where she is tonight. Think I've about got all the shading done on her. Gonna spray her with a workable fixative to keep the pencil from smearing when I start adding paint tomorrow. I'll try to post pics of her tomorrow once I get a little further on her.

Thank y'all so much for all the sweet comments, encouraging words, and lovely emails. They mean so much to me!!! Y'all are all a bunch of sweeties!!! I'll try my best to respond to all of them some time in the next week or so. Right now, I'm trying to focus on getting some painting done so most of my left over energy (which has not been plentiful lately) needs to be spent in my studio.

~love & hugs

Much love + blessings,
