It's probably been 8 or 9 months since I've even attempted to begin a realistic painting. I've felt antsly lately deciding what to paint next - and of course that comes after I thought I had my style all figured out. Well, jokes on me. Maybe I just can't be confined to a certain 'style'.
I like realism, it make me feel satistifed, like I'm accomplishing something. And I really enjoy doing it. I feel like I'm not so great at painting people in a realistic way, but maybe that will come with doing the daily portraits.
Anyway, the above is based on a reference photo I took in the fall on a trail by the Dundas Peak. It's proabably about 3/4 done!
