Oil on Raymar Panel
Today was a fabulous and trying day. Rene, my dear artist friend, came over to sit for me. I am working on a special project and wanted to paint from life. We set up the scene and she sat…and I painted…then wiped…then painted…then wiped…then painted. This is what I ended up with. I am getting there, but it will take a while. I know I am trying to paint to fast and I need to evaluate and measure each stroke, each color, each value…step back…evaluate again and proceed. It was fabulous because, though trying, I learned so much and am more excited than ever to pursue this project. I just hope Rene will hang in there with me. She is a fabulous person with so many wonderful stories. I thoroughly enjoyed her visit. weather permitting she will be back on Friday morning!
