Swimmer, 6x6" oil, ©Diane Mannion

HAPPY 2017!

First painting of the year for the start of another 30 Paintings in 30 Days.  Theme is figurative.  Exploring ideas for future, larger paintings.  Self-portrait, wanted new FB image.

Keeping them all 6x6" and have worked many to the half way point already, not cheating... just an exercise to make myself stop before finishing in one go.  Giving these sketches time to ripen before finishing, and yes, I have 30 unfinished ones ready to FINISH!  

How it looked at the half-way point.
