This is painting #7. This Beautiful Bearded Boy. My first attempt to paint a beard didn't turn out so well. (FYI - I didn't post that painting). Glad this went much better. Constantly learning. Can't wait to go back to the first one and see what I can do with it now. I'm loving this process. I love the idea of sticking with these portraits every day and all month. What a challenge for me. I can't go 30 days without a Dr. Pepper, but I can stick with this.
Definitely going back to this one tomorrow. I want to go back to the original drawing and double check some things. It's a learning process so constant checking what I'm doing is so important for me. I can tell when I'm getting to the boundaries of how long I can work during the day on the painting. I think four hours is my limit in order to keep some perspective on how it's going.
Still working on taking the breaks throughout the day.
By the way, I waited all day for the snow and as of right now we're only getting sleet at my house. Needless to say, I did not go out and play in the snow. If we were 30 miles north of here, we would have had it. We're supposed to get snow over the next few hours though. But it's now tooooo cold out there!
