I'm a bit late posting my own pARTy painting, and I'll be following immediately with all our wonderful participants! I loved seeing Kim's take on the reference.
As I contemplated what I was going to do with the reference image, I thought I was going to go larger, about 11 x 14. Then I spotted a small piece of heavy linen I'd taped to a board some time ago - all toned and ready - and it was just the right proportions for what I wanted to do. It was a challenge to work this small - 3 x 7.25 inches. This particular linen is a very loose weave, so it was comparatively rough, but it readily grabbed the paint – which was handy for my limited time frame! Friday was a busy day, and I didn't have a lot of time to paint!
It was a lot of fun seeing the pARTy images come in - I had a private screening, so to speak! Now, to reveal them to the rest of you!
