Oil on panel
This one was definitely a challenge. Last night, I was getting so hung up on details and ultimately frustrated, I decided to call it a night and tackle it later. What happened next is probably something all artists can relate to. As I was putting things away, I kept looking at the painting to evaluate where I was going wrong, then grabbed one of my freshly cleaned brushes and took a swipe here and there, then more, then more, then pretty much repainted the whole thing loosely, almost carelessly, and found I liked it. So Nancy, I apologize for your blue chin and purple neck. You can view Nancy's blog here. And to see everyone's work on Maria's site, take a look here.
