Oil on canvas panel. 5 x 7 in.
I must be chilly today and wishing I was sinking my toes into this warm beach, so this reference photo said "Paint me!" I'm struggling a little bit with the alla prima nature of daily painting. My usual style is to paint a little bit on a canvas every day till it's finished, letting each layer pretty much dry in between. This is a new way of painting, but I'm learning.
I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
