I realized several things today.
#1 Although it was a good use of time to paint in my office on my lunch hour it's not the best idea. First of all now my desk has paint on it and my room smells like chemicals but mostly I learned that even though you sign out unless they see you get in your car and drive away fast they still bang on your door.
#2 I quickly figured out that my previous "Estebans" were large, 24 X 36 inches, and there was more freedom to swing my brush and give him the curved brushstrokes that his world is made of. This smaller version , 8 X 10 inches, was very constrictive. I like the opportunity to create smaller pieces that are done quicker but I'm going to have to adjust my process.
This little Esteban is under construction. Poor guy, one leg is painfully skinny. I'll post him again when he's done.
