I am starting to pick more complicated and challenging images to paint now. I feel pretty confident in my abilities and am wanting more than just the basic person posing in front of the camera. This newest one has a bicycle in it, but not only does it have a bicycle (which is complicated on it's own), but the bike is at a weird angle. I was a little afraid of starting this piece cause I wasn't so sure if I could paint the bike but so far it, I think it looks pretty good. I still have a ton of work on this painting but so far, I am happy with the results. Take a look:

As you can see, I got a lot of work done today. The spokes on the bike will be interesting to do. I'm not sure how I will approach it yet. I want to not get caught up in all of the details (which I tend to do) and just give the "impression" of the spokes, along with the bike. I am trying to paint more loosely with this one.
