Day 2 of the 30-day Challenge

Day 2 of my 1 a day for 30. Once again the canvas size for this one is 6×8, it was a bit challenging once again felt frustrated from the beginning and not clear on my objective. I tried my best to stay focused on the general aspect of painting, color, lighting, and proportion to scale. As I was painting I tried to remember not to paint the object, focusing more on the color and lighting of the object. I double-checked my proportions a few times using my trusty Derwent scale divider, as listed below. Since I hadn’t painted for a while, I wanted to ensure I was measuring my space correctly.

So today I did not do a video and limited myself to 1 hour and took pictures of my start and stop time, which is 5 minutes shy of an hour.

As I proceeded to paint once again I tried to paint loosely focusing on color and light. The painting came out somewhat muddy, not what I had envisioned.

Thanks for stopping by. Come back tomorrow for day 3. I will continue my journey and will be looking over some of my reference materials to refresh my skills.
