Hold On! 6x6" oil, ©Diane Mannion
#20 of 30/30.
Sometimes, when you least expect it something turns out great! Didn't have much hope for this one but now I like it a lot.
Almost turned the underpainting upside down to start another. Hand too small, light and color unexciting. After working on it for quite awhile... this is how it looked after scraping it off.
I think the magic happened when I added Naples Yellow Light.

Painting's mysterious, takes skill, practice, and tons of luck. The more we paint, the better our chances are for a winner!
