"Going" - SOLD


This was painted alla prima (all at once) and took 2 hours and 15 minutes. I was attempting to lay the paint down quickly but accurately. My natural tendency is to keep going over my paint work with additional adjustments. I was attempting to force myself to lay the paint down and LEAVE it alone. Sounds easy, but it's not.

This is excellent Vicki ! I can only wonder how you finished this when she was gone and without a photograph for reference. Impressive !

Thanks – and while I’m honored that you’re “impressed” I must confess that I DID have a reference photo to work from. I’m not THAT good!!

Oh – well that makes sense now that I think about it. I thought you were a wizard there for a moment. Your proportions are so lovely and the colors so appealing. I really like this one.
