90 From Life: Day 30 – “Rough Day”
This is day 30 of my 90 day challenge to do one new painting from life each day. Have not missed a day so far, and the project is starting to feel like a real accomplishment.
For today’s painting, I took what I started yesterday and doubled down on it. I don’t think any further comment is needed.
This is another painting on copper, which I love as a surface to work on. I only have one copper panel left, so time to get busy and make more.
One of the overall goals of this challenge is to work on speed and accuracy. For this one, I allowed myself 30 minutes to do the rough block-in of the big shapes, took a break, then gave myself an hour to work up the details. So, the painting was done in 90 minutes, spread over 2 hours.
Here’s a video where I show the model I worked from, and discuss the outcome of the painting:
