Painting 117 - 8/25

Oil on gessoboard
You know what? I think this painting is more a sign of a success than my final self portrait turned out to be. It's not a masterpiece or groundbreaking, true. In fact, this painting took half an hour, tops. But look: it reads, it has dimensionality, there is a sense of light. In short, it is a successful painting.

That's what this project was about. It was about learning how to use paint, how to manipulate it comfortably, how to stop struggling against the medium.

And you know what? I think I did it.
