Day 1 of painting.
Day 2 of painting.
As you can see, I have made some progress on this painting. Day 1 was alot of fun, until I realized that I was not able to see any details in the face with the reference photo. Marilyn mailed me a larger photo, and I was able to see what the hands and face were really like. I have a few more details to finish on the hat, and lots of work on the face and skin tones. I want to get the spark of personality Uncle Orville had and put in on the canvas.
I need to work on my cupcake painting, get ready for the Dutch Art Gallery Show, and do a commission piece. But, as we all know, we only paint what we are "in the mood" to paint....
