#15 - Little Wader

January 2014 Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge: Half way there!!

Little Wader
 6x6" oil

If you haven't been reading Richard Robertson's free online art lessons you should check them out.   Today's lesson was a reminder that to make your lights lighter, don't add white but make things around it darker.  I darkened the water and voila the lights finally looked bright!

This is my first dance with daily painting.  I'm learning that I really need a day 2.  I need the 2nd day for one last look with fresh eyes to pick up on little things I missed the day before.    I think this painting will get a couple of those little tweaks tomorrow.
