What I love about the practice of painting is that it's amazing to me at any stage - that's why I do it. Sure, there's an idea - a concept and image in my mind for the work, but it's never exactly what ends up on the linen.
I've been working today on "The Artist's Daughter" for the third session of the work. It's coming along nicely, but not there yet! See for yourself...
Here is the progressive work on Day 3 for the oil on linen panel work by Janice Tanton - "The Artist's Daughter".
I'm my worst critic, but I know it's close to being good when Kevin is speechless. Today, after a cold and busy day of work, he walked up to the studio, took a look at my sketchpad and shed a tear. I won't say anything else.
