'Hat with a Pink Bow'
0ils on board
20cm x 20cm
So day two is here and I'm already behind.
Discovered that if I work in oils I can't scan the painting at all times of the day and night as I would with acrylics, therefore I can only take a photo during daylight hours which, living in the UK means I'm limited to 8a.m. and if I'm lucky, 4p.m. and that's if the light is any good which is rarely the case.
(Think Dickensian, murky, misty-grey streets of London.)
Which is great if I didn't have a day job.
So after having a re-think it looks as if I'm going to have to paint a few ahead of time to compensate for said problem.
I've never painted portraits before OR worked with oils so this is WAY out of my comfort zone.
I'm not sure I've made this challenge quite so difficult.
*makes note to self to knock new subject matter AND new mediums on the head should I ever foolishly take on a 30 in 30 challenge again*
It's a nod to a photo of my niece who had a professional photo taken of her aged 4.
(I've left out the tricky bits!)

Anyways, I'm have a fab time getting completely lost in my painting where hours fly by, yet it feels as if it's just half an hour.
Off to start tomorrow's painting today, if that makes sense!
