oil on single canvas panel 6x8 inches
This week's challenge was posed by Raymond Logan. He said it would be tough, and it was. I painted right from the photo on my laptop, following the rules: paint a black and white using only burnt umber, ult. blue and white, while simultaneously painting a full color portrait from the black and white reference. It was the first time I tried inventing color from a b&w. Fun!
Tomorrow I'll demonstrate at Associated Artists of the Inland Empire's monthly demo meeting. I got lucky...the scheduled demonstrator couldn't make it, so I'm the stand-in! Should be lots of fun because I consider them all my artsy good friends.
