First I want to wish everybody a Very Happy New Year!
I don't make new-year resolutions, because I believe that the best time to change my life is today, whatever day it is. But I constantly make checklists, which sometimes annoys those living with me. Here is my list of things, related to painting, which I want to learn or improve in 2012:
1. do more portraits and figures;
2. start painting larger sizes – half sheet (maybe full sheet);
3. paint more from life and en plain air and overcome the fear of by-standers;
4. paint faster, loosen up my style and focus on simplifying the subjects.
And, as today is the first day, here is my first portrait of the year ( approved by the subject )
