Drawing the earth mother step-by-step is pretty simple. She's a lot of circles. Below are the steps to hand draw the earth mother in. 

Step 1 : Place your basic outline of shapes loosely on the canvas. Oval for the head should be vertically divided on her center axis. Horizontally divide her face in half for her eyes. In half again from the eyes to the chin for her nose. In half again from her nose to her chin to place the mouth. 


Step 2. Begin to refine her features in the nose eyes and mouth.

Sometimes as an artist you just realize you need to change things UP. Yes I realize it's January and I said it was spring but in Texas it feels like spring to me right now and so I just felt she needed a bloom. There's nothing like changing direction a little bit in the project to unlock new spaces that you can explore creatively. Never be afraid of taking a little bit of a risk and with your  painting.  If you get an instinct or an idea for something you think would be good Go for It . Sometimes it works out sometimes it doesn't. A  painting that worked out isn't really the goal of being creative. The goal of being creative is to use your imagination and that can't be box in by results.

What are the differences in canvas. Linen, cotton, etc.
Linen is longer lasting and more often used in fine art portraits if the artist prefers stretched canvas over Hard artist panels. It is longer lasting and more archival. It is also more expensive and Cotton has lots going for it. I personally use cotton more and switch to ampersand panels for projects where my surface is paramount. Cotton is not difficult to stretch and linen is. Its rare to find a cotton canvas unprimed but you can find Raw linen for art practices. There are more differences in sourcing and fibers.
