“Leap of Faith”: 90 From Life – Day 42
This is day 42 (yes, that number) of my 90 day challenge to do one new painting from life each day.
The last few paintings were modest pieces. I’m in no way ashamed of them, but they are exactly what they are; quickly executed studies as part of an 3 month daily practice project. But today, I wanted to make a substantial investment of time and effort to do a painting I could be proud of. And I’m proud of this result, especially given the fact that it’s an alla prima (in one sitting) painting, executed over the course of about 7 hours.
The next few days will have to be quicker pieces, since I have some other obligations, but I’m sure glad I spent the extra time on this one today.
