HH4 Challenge #7 - Shades

Isn't this little guy just cool? Shades in place, all business - and just wait till he grows up!

Oil, 4'' x 4''

The reference photo was taken by Lydia Jechorek as our fortnighly challenge - have a look at what the HH4 ladies came up with, I like how we all chose a different 'soom factor'!

HH4 Challenge #6 - Kindred Spirits

You know, this is called a 'challenge' for a good reason - sometimes I get the painting done early, with no deadline pressure at all. And then there are weeks like the last. I actually got to painting on the day of the deadline, when one of my friends had already mailed out her entry.
I told her.
She replied: "Hahaha.  That is why it is called a challenge!!!  Good luck!".
Soooo... no more postponing, I set up my easel and painted from 9pm to 11pm. Took a picture, mailed it out. Made it in time.

Again, we had a wonderful reference picture to paint from . thanks, Maria! It was actually almost too cute to even tackle it (maybe that's why I waited so long?), but I must say I'm quite happy with my result.
