What I Used for This Painting

Acrylic, canvas on wood frame. 4 feet x 4 feet.

Why This Painting is My Favorite

Regardless of the many paintings I've done this year, I keep coming back to this fellow. I remember praying I wouldn't mess it up! I love lots of color and the balanced use of cools and warms is perhaps what I like best. Something about his expression also captures my attention. It's currently hanging in Olde Town Gallery in Conyers, Georgia.

Lessons Learned

  • Particularly with acrylics, I learned to make sure that my colors stayed true (rather than letting water dilute the image to more of a watercolor). I also learned that excellence in doing the little things is the measure of one's excellence.
