One Third Done

Today is Day 10 in the 30 Paintings in 30 Day Challenge, which means that we are one third done!

Getting in my darks and today I was going to make sure my darks were plenty dark! Lesson learned!

Oh my - just look at how dark that skin tone is against the white canvas but I stuck to my plan! may be a hair darker than the original but I was happy to have finally gotten my darks dark enough!!

Fisherwoman from Valencia (original by Joaquin Sorolla)

I have to say I really enjoyed painting this portrait today.  The colors are so yummy and Sorolla's style of bold loose brush work is wonderful!

    I do love Sorolla. His light is always so beautiful.
    I like the idea of copying masters'portrait, You seem to learn a lot. (should try it too)
