Finally! I hereby present the final five direct paintings I did for the June challenge.
Even with all its flaws I actually prefer the quick thumbnail portrait on the left to the more detailed portrait I did to follow. Again from a Sktchy photo.
More negative painting practice. I pulled out a teeny-tiny brush to do the darker lettering.
My ever-present studio companion. He truly is only 4 inches tall!
From another photo found on Sktchy. I had a vision of a zen monk in deep meditation.
Last day of June! Marquette grapes make darn good wine… they’re cold-hardy and they grow in Vermont!
Looking back on the month of paintings I can see where I fail but more importantly I see where things went right… things I learned and want to repeat. It was a great month!
