7 Day Lazy Morning Challenge: Day 2: Portrait of my husband

Welcome to the 7 Day Lazy Morning Challenge where we set up our week up ahead of time to wake up 2 hours earlier than we need to before work to spend 30 minutes minimum working on a particular project! My project being painting!

Welp! This morning was a huge success! Not only, did I get up on time, work on my daily project for 45 minutes, and feel good, but I worked on a painting that last week I was not happy with how it was turning out.

The last couple of times that I worked on it, I didn’t feel like I was painting it, just going back and re-doing areas I was unhappy with over and over.

I considered giving up and starting over- but then suddenly I got a lot of encouraging comments on Instagram from the process photos of this painting- so I decided to keep at it.

As if by magic, everything about this painting came together for me. Everything I was having trouble with I just suddenly knew how to do!

The bird actually looks like a mechanical bird instead of an abstract mess of brushstrokes painted by someone who’s never seen a bird in their life.
I’m super happy with how the hand turned out! I was having so much trouble with it!
