The Daily Paintworks Challenge for this week is to paint a superstition. I decided to paint the sample photo as it was certainly a challenge enough........all the various values and shades of red. So I am happy that I got the shape of the umbrella and think it is nice that that the object resting under the umbrella looks rather animal like! Since I have never painted a cat and am not likely to do so again very soon, rather animal like is fine. The sheen on the painting is not fine.........I need to slow down and mix some cold wax medium into the medium I was using. That would dull down that very reflective surface.
