I did not have a bunch of time to paint, but that is not an excuse not to paint. I grabbed an old painting I did not like, probably from a past 30 paintings in 30 days exercise, and got to work. I really only got this quick sketch done but I am not unhappy with it thus far and see potential with going further. I like the texture coming through and what really caught my eye once this was set up was the cast shadow. I decided to make that more the focal point. The texture coming through almost makes the surface look like rice paper...hmm.
Note: I have decided I am going with 30 days of painting versus getting 30 paintings done.
