My 80th portrait. Honestly, I wasn’t sure I’d get this far.
I think the secret has been that I am not being too precious about the work.
That’s usually a big failing of mine. My life drawing teacher joked last week about making me paint with a floor broom because I was being so finicky with my brush strokes.
But with these images, I rarely take more than 20 minutes, which means it’s not too much of a time burden, which in turn means I haven’t yet felt like shirking.
Have any of you taken on a challenge like this? Did you hit a wall at any point?
