“Red Head” 6x6, oil on canvas Buy Now

For today’s painting, I referenced a beautiful photograph of a red-bellied woodpecker I found on instagram by @the_peck_deck.

At first I just saw the more abstract painting I would do– a focus on those black and white stripes on the feathers, but, being who I am, a woman of discipline and routine, I opted for this little 6x6 to get me started.

Not sure if I’ll get to the abstracted version this month. I’m nearly out of white paint and my order won’t come in for a week. Like I mentioned yesterday, the larger palette knife pieces require a lot of paint. It’s possible I’ll stick to the littles to finish out my month, but who knows, there’s a great art store just down the road. We will see what tomorrow brings.
