Et voici, my final report on this week's 5-Day Challenge. It's been a good one!
On Day 4 I continued working with the results I came up with on Day 3 below. It was a short session compared to the others, but I still did it.
results from Day 3
I painted the blocks that hadn't been painted yet (see above and to the right of the white critter?) and I added second coats of paint on most of the other blocks to make them richer.
I'm afraid that in my enthusiasm to continue working on Day 5 I forgot to take a picture of the results from Day 4 so you'll just have to take my word for it.
I spent Day 5's session polishing up. I continued with extra coats to make the colours even more solid, I added black lines where there were none and I fixed the ones that were there:
Day 5 results - close to done!, 12x12 on wood panel
When I look at it closely I see a few tiny touch-ups remaining before declaring it complete, but I'm pretty damn close and it feels good.
So on that note I declare this week's 5-Day Challenge officially complete and a success!
I showed up at the table every day, persisted to complete (or nearly) a piece, and my interest in art and art-making was re-kindled. A success indeed.
Perhaps next time you'll join me?
