Birdx2 Hungry Birds

Day 3 of Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge
9"x12" Oil on arches 140lb paper

Well, I've learned a lot so far! I thought I would take this period and experiment with different surfaces, media, etc. and so far I have. I thought that would be quick and I wouldn't be invested in "perfectionism." Turns out that Every one of those differences is more challenging than I thought! It takes even longer to figure out what surface to use, what experiment to try, how to use different media(acrylics drove me nuts) and even how to compose in different sizes. I still think it will be a valuable way to grow, however I may only try one change per painting instead of 3 or 4 at once.
