Starting something new!
When I haven’t been at my easel for a while, I always come back starting simple. This is the beginning of my “warm-up” painting. It’s 16×20. Painting all day so it should be done later this evening! 🙂 Watch for the post! (Also watch for progress on this post.) Pardon the poor quality images taken from my phone.
Tomorrow when the sun is out I will take a better picture (not from my phone, but from my good camera.)
So fun! I am very happy with the result. Good, solid day of painting.
This (below) is also something I usually won’t show, but I do think as an artist you can learn a lot from comparing. Even though my canvas is entirely covered, I’m not considering this piece done quite yet. I will set it up for a few days and make a list of thing to correct. It always helps to come back with a fresh eye. 🙂 (again, sorry for the poor quality image!)
