January 16th - Third week of the January Painting Project


I'm feeling overwhelmed today. I had a wonderful milestone birthday yesterday and spent the day away from home seeing friends and celebrating in the evening at our favourite local pub.  There are a few projects I need to work on so I am finding a daily - unrelated painting session isn't easy to fit in and I am very conscious that I need to delve into subject matter more. This is most definitely more of a sketch but there are elements that I love - the two stripes of pink for collar bones being my favourite!  The lower half of the painting is fresh and lively. I am giving myself permission to paint whatever I like tomorrow, figure or animal. After all,  no one is holding me to account, only myself.

This was painted on card with acrylic.
