Day 5 September 2016 30 in 30 Challenge
It isn’t easy painting to a quick turnaround deadline and accept the work produced in that time! And making it public is yet another challenge.
I love these pileated woodpeckers and have painted several. I had a request to paint this one, and after sketching it, I LOST the reference! No idea where the resource is. And so, from memory and another resource I churned out this painting. As I write this, I know that I am going to tweak it some more before posting.
I often question why I am painting a certain subject. Often that questioning blocks me and I don’t paint. In this challenge, I must keep going. I cannot get bogged down, and so, in the moment, I have to drop the thought and move on.
