Head Study

This is a 20 minute study I did in a Robert Liberace workshop. The workshop was terrific, just what I needed. Before the workshop, I was feeling stuck in my painting. I was trying too hard, I think. I had slowed way down. I feel my biggest challenge in painting is getting the values right and I was obsessing with every stroke. Anyway, the first day of the workshop we painted 15 and 20 minute studies. This made the act primal, fierce and really fun. Something clicked for me that had been missing in my process for the longest time. I feel like I got back some of that fearlessness and immediacy I had as a student.
