Here is a trial run for the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge starting in January, This is the third time I will be doing this challenge with a group of 300+ artists all around the world. Feels incredible to be part of it and everytime I do it, I have gotten better in my technique.
This time I have decided to stick to 6 x 6 inches, small canvas board. The theme is going to be fruits and vegetables. I will challenge myself with different colors, slices and wedges as I go along.
For the trial run, I did a backlit Tomato. The trial run was to get an estimate on the approx time I will need to allocate for this exercise. It took me 2 hours to do this, which means I should set aside that much time daily. 
Lighting makes a lot of difference when viewing the painting. The first version of picture is taken under normal daylight in a shadow area. The second version is under studio light - both warm and cool light being used when I paint.

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

Inspired by Christmas decoration and lighting in the garden, I felt like doing this lighted Reindeer. There is a lane in our neighborhood that does lots of christmas decorations and lighting. Its a very lively street and many people from far away neighborhoods come to visit here during christmas time. I took lots of pictures and when I was looking at pictures to paint, this red nosed reindeer captured my attention.
