Okay. I've caught up with last year's painting total. I painted this today, actually yesterday, since it's 1:30 am as I write this. I decided to film this painting. After viewing this, I wish I had realized my head would be popping into the screen so much. I would have combed my hair after my mid-afternoon nap. Ha!
I painted this from a photo I took of a guy warming up in the Canticle Cafe, on the corner of Liberty and Vine, in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati. It's a 5"x7" oil on panel. I'm going to work on it a little more tomorrow (or should I say today?). My tape was one hour, so I quit painting when the recording stopped. I think I'll need still 30 minutes or so to bring the painting to a finish.
So here's a much edited version of the video.
