A touch of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) is good for an artist I find. Don't you?
I erased my 'challenge' drawing from the day before and re-did it yesterday searching for 'the feel' I was after. I then painted the drawing, getting the feel I wanted pretty quickly unlike before when I was drawing through molasses.
The angle and crop of the hat took me the most time. The expression coming much more easily than before. Now what shall I do today for the challenge? Any ideas?
