Painting!!



So my friend Marcella and I have each decided to tackle a yearly goal (for me, painting, for her, sewing) and try to put pressure on each other to actually make progress! I'm also going to be posting what I do on my blog, in the hopes that it will keep me feeling as though I'm responsible to someone. The idea is to post something either once a week, or once every two weeks.

Here's my first painting, and it's really just an exercise to get me going. It's a copy of a photograph, since I wanted to make myself start thinking more seriously about value. (I'm not going to tackle color yet - or content.. that comes last.) I think it was reasonably successful, and I look forward to doing something similar next week to improve, because there is plenty of room for improvement.
