I didn’t mention in the previous post that I was home away from work just as I was today.
“Taste n Smell” 8×10 oil on canvas
I used my oil paint brand, ALKMY for help with the flesh tones on this one.
This painting derives from a photo on Instagram. I initially wanted to do a female subject like the previous post, using the word “beauty” as a reference tag. What appeared was this photo.
An interesting choice for the word “beauty” I thought but went for it anyway. I’ve seen many artists choose the focus in on facial features such as this and felt it would be a good challenge in this journey of daily painting.
On another note, I found out I’d be showing one of my abstract works at an upcoming art show here in Houston. The funny thing? It was due to a wild abstract piece I finished a week ago just to release some tension.
But on to today’s daily painting.
