This is one that doesn't make me happy, but I'm not sure what's wrong. I think that it's because I don't have enough lighter values. Everything seems sort of mid-range. I wasn't able to rescue it, but I didn't want to wipe it off, either. There's a lesson in here somewhere. Maybe in a few months I'll look at it and be able to "see".
I have been loving everyone's New Year's posts. Carrie Waller, Crystal Cook, and Kim Rempel all posted their favorite ten paintings for 2010. Pretty impressive, all three of them. Carrie posted her goals for 2011--specific and written down, just as the experts say you should!
I started my blog in June 2010, and I noticed that I made 68 posts for those seven months. That's about ten per month. I didn't really have a goal when I started, other than a vague one that I wanted to learn to paint. I've realized how much these studies have helped me improve, so I'm setting a goal of painting four times a week. That would be over 200 paintings in 2011. Kind of scares me to put it in writing!
