This start was a mixture of exhilaration and frustration. I decided to have the pleasure of painting a non-commissioned painting between the commissioned ones, so during the Wednesday broadcast last night I toned this 16x20 canvas panel and waded in with a palette knife. I tend not to plan very far ahead when I paint, and I can see where toning well ahead of time would be a benefit. I struggled with his mouth throughout the three hours I painted. Also, I think my strokes became quite fussy quite soon. I'm going to stare this fellow down for a day or so and then see if I can sort him out a bit better.
As always, I'm grateful to the friendly, encouraging artists who kept me company as I painted last night. Group hug!
I'm only adding this PayPal Button to illustrate its use to the artists attending the blog workshop. The painting has not been completed. Of course, if you really want it....
