# 11..... of 30 paintings in 30 days 2013

Wow...I can hardly believe it is already day 11! Last year, it was getting to be a bit of a struggle by this time and this year, I just feel like I am getting rolling. I am really having fun the last few paintings. Not sure if it is because I am going back to portraiture or if it is because these have been in the planning stages for some time. You know, the long, long list that seems to just grow....it is great to start checking them off and watching the list shrink for a change!

I feel like I am learning more this go round. I now think I need to do this more than just the month of January. I still have a bit of travel planned for this year but maybe I will do small ones when I travel if I don't paint plein air!

Here is today's effort.........again, I struggled with a few things and think I need to go back and punch up a few darks....

I don't see anything that should be changed Ruth Ann. I think it's great - the shadow from the hat brim sure works nice..he looks like that part of his body would be shady and cooled. He appears to be quite a character! I am with you, pinch me - I have done this many paintings in 11 days, which by most years would maybe be done by end of Feb. or later. It is such a powerful start to the year...I hope it can continue!
