Oil on Raymar Panel
I am trying to keep up with Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 but not faring as well as I would like. It is more like 15 in 30 for me as I am posting every other day. Then there is that darn trip to Switzerland ;) that will put me out of the game for 10 days! But I do what I can.
This painting is of one of my precious grand nieces hugging her doll...I just love the angles and positioning of the legs. It was fun to block in the lights and darks and let the painting take shape. I did have a bit of a challenge with the doll...not wanting it to look too much like human skin...trying to get it to look more plasticky. When my husband arrived home from work I excitedly presented my work for his praise...he said the monkey looked too yellow...so back down to earth I fixed the monkey to look more like a doll. Ah, well...he keeps me from getting a big head...
