February Challenge Recap
Not sure what happened to my posting but here is a quick recap. The challenge had been to paint or draw everyday for 30 days. It could be anything, working on a painting for multiple sessions, drawing a 5 minute sketch, starting and completing a small painting.... I chose to paint from life as much as I could to keep up the momentum from January's challenge. Two paintings were done from photos and some were worked on two sessions. There is one repeat image to complete the grid. I was happy for the most part with what I accomplished. Any day of painting is a good day and even if I feel it is unsuccessful just putting the painting miles in, looking and trying to translate a 3 dimensional scene into a two dimensional painting is a learning experience. Since this challenge has ended Lori has given us another of painting from life at least one time/week. I have been trying to do more than that but I feel in a bit of a slump. I haven't been able to complete any painting in one sitting and I haven't been as happy with what I have been painting. I will try to finish some of the above paintings that I never quite finished and start posting them on the Daily Paintworks site. Thank You to those of you who have already purchased some of February's paintings!!
After spending over 20 years photographing professionally I thought it was time to explore something new and experience my world with paint and a brush.
