This is a mini painting I re-discovered hiding in a dresser and decided to put it in a mini frame. I initially bought this frame for another mini painting, but I could not find it and decided to try this one out in it. Some of my small paintings are my favorites!
I decided to take a break from painting recently, but I am back to it again! As much as I love landscapes and painting, I am thinking of going back to charcoal for a bit and focusing on portraits.
I enjoy practicing on smaller panels; I don’t feel overwhelmed, and I have room to practice new techniques without fear or messing up. For this painting, I wanted to keep my brushstrokes loose while leaving visible texture. This was painted on a 6″ x 8″ panel.
