|Play'n the Blues, 8x8" oil on RayMar panel ($150)|
This was a very interesting challenge because it totally took me out of my comfort zone. I thought faces were tough, but I found out hands are in another category of tough for me! That's what's great about challenges... they are something that I had wanted to try, but never took the plunge. I think they've pushed me to go places I probably would not go on my own. I'm learning so much about changes in composite and color. I also know that I need a challenge with a deadline. Nothing like having to post something on a specific day to get you moving and painting.
If you aren't already trying challenges such as The Daily Painter's Challenge find a couple of artist friends and start your own challenge.
