I swear to you that I am not crazy – I’m just at a serious stand-still when it comes to my art! I need a decisive kick in the pants, so against my better judgement, I’ve decided to participate in Leslie Saeta’s “30 Paintings in 30 Days” challenge!
I’m just kidding – cranking out a painting a day is actually a really good idea. I did that for a week last winter and I ended up learning so much (and bonus! I had 5 beautiful landscape paintings by the end of it). I talk a big talk about how I want to be a serious artist, but that’s never going to happen if I can’t even decide on what I want to paint, or if I lack the skills to get those paintings onto canvas. Thirty days of face studies should not only bring my skill level up to something acceptable, but also help me to determine if painting the figure is what I want to focus on at all.
Here we go….!
