This is my first out-and-out cheat on the “painting a day” requirement. This is the first half of a painting.
There are two ameliorating factors. One, this was really all I could do, in terms of applying paint to paper. I did do a good deal of preparatory work – establishing color choices, working out mixes, figuring out how to achieve some of the technical effects I was after.
Two, I finished the painting the next day, and I did two paintings on the 30th. 🙂
So: the first half of a painting that would eventually become a favorite: Island Dream.
