I want to paint more.  This is the start of that resolve.

(I just looked at this small and noticed the white of the shirt and the grey of the BG are switched.  oops)

This is the first portrait that i have done that bears a resemblance to the person that I was painting.  I didn't actually time myself with this so i might have been a little longer than 30 min, but i am happy with the exercise.

I would like to do more over the next month.

First Speed "Paint" - Debra (21 Jun. '13)

What I learned:
Colored Pencil is a completely different beast than Digital Painting
Things that look simple aren't
It got better when I stopped trying to make it perfect
The important part should be the feel, not making it exactly like the original
Deviation really is ok.

Drawing with your potty-training toddler around makes it take longer, but at least the baby was taking a nap.  :D

First "speed paint" I have ever done.  Original is from Andreas Rocha.  It took about 40 min (oops) but it was fun to do.  And i learned that I have a LOT more to learn about color and painting.

Happy Valley (3-24-13)

Feeling inspired by the new posts!  Here's one of Happy Valley, from Mickey and the Beanstalk. (Myyyyyy what a lovely daaaaaay)

When I went to BYU, it was referred to as "Happy Valley" because everyone there was so darn smiley.  It was a pretty happy place to live :)
