6x6" oil on panel
Normally when I'm working on some of my bigger paintings or commissions, I like to start off with a "study" or a small painting, just to get the juices flowing. Usually that meant painting a cupcake or two. Recently, reworking old small paintings has been my go-to warm up. This little blue beach girl is one of them. I'm working on my values in paintings and these beach people paintings are perfect for that kind of practice.
