i decided at the last moment (not on january 1, but on january 3) to join a 30 paintings in 30 days challenge inspired by my session at Studio 30 painting in oils from a live model yesterday. it was fun, and i can certainly use the practice! so this little palm tree is a quick study done on canvas.
this is the portrait i painted in the 3 hour session yesterday with a model on a 12" x 12" panel with oil paint. i will work on it further to get it to where i feel happier with the result! i know doing a painting every day (which was my initial inspiration to start this art blog a few years ago) will bring much joy, practice, and improvement to my art.
thanks for viewing! comments are always welcome!
peace, blessings, and all best in the new year!
