"Penny" 6 x 6 Oil
"Penny" is based on a photo by Janet Harman who generously shared it on the Facebook site, Photos for Artists. For this painting, I did not start with an underpainting - and I wish I had! The underpainting establishes the strong lights and darks which is helpful as the painting progresses. But, this challenge is intended to grow as an artist and I am learning a lot.
