I'm going to watch the Olympics no matter what so what better thing to do while I'm wasting this time than to learn to paint. The mountains are so pretty in Italy that I decided to do a mountain picture. It took about 3 days to paint with acrlyics but I'm pretty happy with it. Then last night I started on a portrait-type painting of a little girl that I sketched. I'm pretty much just winging it on technique etc. I'll have to stop and learn a bit more about glazes before proceeding. It is really hard to take a good picture of a painting. I wonder how the experts do it.
After I put a wash on the sketch almost all my sketch was gone and I'm having to look at the pictures of I took of the sketch.
A long way to go.
