Smiling Eyes, Acrylic on Gessoed Mat Board, 10"x7"
Day 7 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge
This one started on a bright gold background but it overwhelmed the rest of the painting, so in the end, I covered it all up. I do feel like I got my skin tones right here. I'm having trouble getting that softness in the chin line as people hit middle age - this one shows it a little bit, so progress.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
