New Painting Day!

It was nice to have the night off work so I could just come home after the first shift and just... Stare at a blank page. I did that for awhile. And then I just started painting. I didn't sketch anything out, I just flipped open my (AMAZING) visual dictionary and found some bones to draw. And a fern. I wanted to try out a color palate I really liked, and try out some brush techniques like using sponges and cardboard. Turned out pretty well I think!

I'm honestly not sure if I like the pink/purple color of the fern, I think if I did it again I would do really poppy colors on the background, and then realistic fern colors for the actual fern. But I don't hate it! What you can't see is that on the edges of the canvas, the bones continue so you can see (some of) the rest of them. The top right is a molar.
Then I tried to sign my name at the bottom and it just ruined the whole thing so I took it off. Are you required to sign things? My name: KATIE just looks so juvenile and blocky. I need to find some pen name that looks better. KAG. KW. I don't know.
