LOTS of new 150 Challenge paintings!
I am delighted to tell you that I have #42 all the way down to #28
paintings posted on my 150 Challenge Show blog.
This painting is #36 and is titled "BAILLA."
The photo above shows my Speedball hardboard panel
that has been toned in with red and burnt sienna.
Oil paint just seems to love this surface.
I just loosely sketched my idea and started laying down the color.
Below is the finished piece.
I will be madly working for the next three days.
I'm aiming to finish by Wednesday night.
I'm sad that I'm almost done but I'm so excited for the show and I can't wait to see them all hanging in one location at Weems Old Town!
I've got my final photos chosen, all except #1.
I always try to make the last one have some kind of special meaning for me
and my mind is blank right now on what I want that to be.
Maybe a self- portrait?
