My Painting #29 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - September 2013 Challenge
Amazing! We are at Day #29 of Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days - September 2013 Daily Painting Challenge. Only 1 more day to go!
The inspiration for today's Vase Face is from the current book cover of "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I get all excited when I see a Vase Face from all sorts of inspiration! This current book cover is absolutely stunning, so I used the colors and incorporated them into today's painting. Here is a link to Amazon if you don't know what this book cover looks like.
I also had time today for practicing my drawing! My daughter, McKenna purchased a book of birds for me called "Birds - The Art of Ornithology" by Jonathan Elphick.
Here is the bird photo I was looking at:
And here is the bird I drew using graphite pencils. I really like using these pencils because it is SO fun to blend! (I ran out of space on the paper, so I couldn't make his tail feathers as long.) :o)
Hope you enjoy today's painting.
See you for Day #30. I've got something pretty cool planned for the last day of this challenge!! Can't wait to show you.
Happy Painting! Cheers! and ... Break a Bristle.
