Day 3 September 2016 30 in 30 Challenge
Overwhelm is setting in. Only Day 3 of the challenge, and everything besides painting is popping up wanting to get done. Part of the process of doing a challenge each day, is that stuff W.I.L.L. Come. Up! How we negotiate it, is the learning experience. Part of my negotiating it is determining what I will paint today that will be easiest and quick.
Today’s painting wasn’t easy and quick. Not only that, I didn’t like it and had to sleep on it so the next morning I finished it off. I added ‘motion’ to the subject, something I’ve seen another wildlife artist do spectacularly. I have to be careful with myself, I can get into the details and I prefer being looser. I like the details to bring out what needs to be brought out, but not create a totally true painting to the photo resource.
