Oil on Canvas Panel
8 x 10 in/20.3 x 25.4 cm
I would like to attribute it to wanting to paint with some new oil paints that were received as a gift; however the painting was completed using the paints I already had on hand because I want to use them up before opening new tubes of paint.
Call me process-driven.
I keep up my interest this time of year by viewing some paintings of a few favorite painters, such as the ones listed over there in the right-hand column and on sites, such as FASO's Boldbrush painting contest.
I attempt to take what I see and consider as good painting and incorporate some of those techniques into my work.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
As a painter friend of mine always says, "That's how we learn."
Happy New Year.
