Mr Wilson

Meet Mr. Wilson!
He's a lovely, adorable dachshund, small dog, big personality!

I met him a few years ago when I was staying with my friend Nancy in Scottsdale. Two weeks ago, she challenged me to paint him...

Oh, by the way: Wouldn't it be just great to paint a cat (or dog) called Dr. House next? - so if you have or know of such a cat or dog, send me a picture!

Selfie - 1/2014

It was good to be painting again yesterday - feels like such a long time since the last 30 in 30 painting (ehmm.. ok, four days...)

I love doing portraits and will do more in the next weeks. So of course I had to start with a 'selfie'!
Doing a self portrait has many advantages - your model is ready when you are, and usually doesn't complain. Or not too much. And apart from the practical side, I think it is a great way for an artist to  journal both oneself as a person and one's art and where we are on our artistic journey.

I started this portrait end of December but did not work on it during the 30 in 30 challenge. I had started out with a monochrome underpaiting and expected to work on this with layers. But when I put it on the easle to finish I realzed I needed to aproach this differently, with more colors, more spontaneity. I quite like the way it turned out!
