This is from the same reference used for my 8 x 10 piece "Nine For A Party" (sold), but, aside from an extra cast member, this acrylic piece is 18 x 24. I am feeling fine with the acrylics now, after a long time of working pretty exclusively in oil. I'll be ready for the Lookout Society gala event on October 2.
It could be called "Bye Bye Baby" as it is the last of my 30 paintings in 30 days…These last few days I have not started my paintings until after 8 or 9 pm…with the goal to post before midnight. No pressure(!) I was planning on doing another 30 in 30 challenge in September, but I think I'll go to England instead. ;-)
When you walk the Wainwright Coast to Coast path from west to east (across England), you start from the St. Bees Headland on the Irish Sea and head west until you hit the North Sea. Lots of up and down and wet places in between. Quite honestly, it was the most memorable 16 days I've ever had. This is the view of St. Bees Head where one starts. The photo was taken a few years back, and finally painted today.
