The values here were pretty dark which made it a challenge to get a sense of form and volume. I feel pretty good about the overall result. Good enough to maybe enter a show or two.
The light I have to work by isn't really the best either, but hey, I'm blessed to even have a place to paint. I'm curious, if there are any painters out there that happen to be stopping by, what kind of lighting do you work by?
Anyway, I hope you like it.

Oh, and another thing. I recently got some amazing news on another workshop which I will be attending and reporting on here.
For the last few years I have been submitting my name to participate in a 5-day workshop with Dan Gerhartz. Dan's workshops are so popular that participants are chosen by lottery. As I said, the last few years I have tried to get in but my name was never chosen. This year I decided to give it one more try, as I was beginning to think that it was perhaps not meant to be and was ready to move on.
Well guess what?
Anyway, of all the (living) artists whose work I admire and love to look at, Dan's is right at the tippety-top, so this will be very much a bucket-list experience for me.
