I had a blast doing my 3X3 inch square today. It's the Month of Experimentation so in that spirit I took out my palette knives. I don't use them much-- even when oil painting-- ocassionally and never for an entire painting. But today I did this square with them using acrylic paint. I've had a bear character on my mind for awhile and it was time to get it out. This experiment meant no looking for reference (to see what a real bear looks like). I wanted to just blurt it out. And blurt I did. This was fast and fun. And I liked being able to say 'Hi' to this guy. It's a beginning!
(The scan muted the colors a bit but this gives a good idea of it.)
