Day 19- 30 Paintings in 30 Days
"Girl with a Secret"Nearly 2 years ago, I visited a coffee house in Texas, and saw this girl wearing a fun scarf, and I asked her if I could take her photo so that I could paint her. Wonder what she would think of the way that I abstracted her image? Again, being influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright, this painting was a pleasure to paint from start to finish. However, it took 8 hours to paint! For my reference, I used a color sketch that I had done while I was in Texas. I'm finding that my 30 minute sketches are so valuable as I do this 30 day challenge. This painting is 10" x 10" image.
